Congress-JD(S) internal feud responsible for crisis in Karnataka: BJP

Ramesh Jarkiholi

Are we sanyasis (hermits)?

While the Congress and JD (S) had contested against each other in the 2018 assembly polls, they joined hands to form the government after the BJP emerged as the single largest party. Patel is said to be upset over the state Congress leaders for not being able to hold back senior leader Ramalinga Reddy, who has a strong follower base in the capital. "We are adopting a wait and watch approach", he said on Sunday.

A day after 12 Congress and JD (S) MLAs resigned from the state Assembly taking the total number of resignations to 13, triggering a serious crisis in the ruling JD (S)-Congress coalition, crisis managers of the coalition got to work proposing an alternative CM - Malikarjun Kharge - to replace Mr H.D. Kumaraswamy hoping that this would pacify the dissidents but Mr Kharge himself dismissed these reports as "flimsy" and meant to divide the coalition partners. "All 13 of MLAs who have resigned are together and there is no question of us withdrawing our resignation", one among the MLAs who resigned, S T Somashekar, said in Mumbai. "I had submitted my resignation to Congress President Rahul Gandhi 8-10 days ago".

The ruling coalition, which has a strength of 118 in the 224-member assembly, faces the risk of losing its majority if the resignations are accepted. On today's episode we're diving into the Karnataka crisis with three questions- Was this crisis a long time coming? He is expected to return this evening. While Chief Minister, H.D Kumaraswamy is confident of saving his government, the Congress accused BJP of poaching its legislatures. "The Assembly session will begin on July 12 and we will know how many people will violate the whip". He said the Congress has anyway suspended him which means they do not want him. "He has said he will take a call on the resignations on Tuesday".

US job growth surges, July rate cut expectations intact
But, some economic experts predict that the Fed will cut rates, and the jobs report bolsters confidence to do so. Construction companies added 21,000 workers after having increased their payrolls by only 5,000 in May.

Comparing Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "Mohammad bin Tughlaq", the Karnataka Congress said in a tweet, "He is a politician who has no ethical or moral values".

"We have sent our message through DK Shivakumar to KC Venugopal (Karnataka Congress in-charge) to convince their MLAs and let the government run smoothly". "They (JDS) have called for a meeting of their party leaders and we will also call our party leaders and will sort it out this issue". Siddaramaiah is responsible, also some senior Congress leaders are involved in it, he added.

The developments have sent leaders of both the parties in a huddle with senior leaders holding a slew of meetings to contain the situation. I look forward to play a national role to help stabilise the party. "It is Congress party's game plan to out HD Deve Gowda and his family", Joshi said, according to ANI.

Cutting his visit short, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy will be flying back to India from the United States on Sunday evening. Tourism Minister S.R. Mahesh and Minor Irrigation Minister C.S. Puttaraju are ready to resign from their posts to pave way for disgruntled MLAs, sources said.
