The Trip to Delhi comes after a revealing comment made by Kumaraswamy on Sunday. Kumaraswamy stated that the people rejected him and his party and His chief ministership is because of Congress patronage and not a public mandate.

“Mine is not an independent government. I had requested the people to give me a mandate that prevents me from succumbing to any pressure other than you. But today I am at the mercy of the Congress. I am not under the pressure of the 6.5 crore people of the state,”

His statement may insinuate at the growing discontent between the JD(S) and Congress, and how this alliance may limit his abilities to take an independent decision.

This trip to Delhi and Kumaraswamy’s visit with The Prime Minister comes when the negotiations with Congress still persists at the state level. Interestingly, Rahul Gandhi has left the country for the annual medical check-up of Sonia Gandhi. The Karnataka Congress In-charge KC Venugopal commenting upon it sated –

“Karnataka leaders and I are discussing with Janata Dal (Secular). When it will be finalized from our side, then only it will reach the leadership. That is the procedure. Rahul Gandhi is available on phone,”

With the growing pressure from the Karnataka BJP to deliver on JD(S)’s electoral promise of farmer loan waiver along with the seemingly growing distance between the Congress and JD(S), this trip can prove to be crucial in Karnataka politics and it’s future.
