Drama continues: Congress – JD(S) alliance erupts in dissent following Kumaraswamy’s cabinet announcement

Dissent looked to be the dominant emotion among quite a few Congress and JD(S) leaders who were miffed at missing out on a ministerial berth following the cabinet announcement of the HD Kumaraswamy led Karnataka government, The Hindu has reported.

As reported by Times of India, there will be a total of 25 ministers in the Kumaraswamy government with 10 belonging to the JD(S) and the rest 15 to the Congress.

The anger mainly expressed by senior leaders in both the camps, saw them grumbling about their seniority and service being ignored.

Those angered include Congress leader and former water resources minister MB Patil who claimed that his self-respect was hurt owing to the rejection. After vowing to not take up any post offered by his party, Patil claimed that he would call up senior leaders Siddaramaiah and G Parameshwara to demand an explanation.

Another Congress leader BC Patil who too didn’t get any ministry attacked state and central Congress leadership by claiming that the party had shut the door on committed and sincere leaders.

Other Congress leaders who expressed unhappiness at the exclusion included MTB Nagaraj, BK Sangameshwar, Roshan Baig, Tanveer Sait and Ramalinga Reddy.

The JD(S) too was not spared of such a dissent, with its leaders Basavaraj Horatti, A.H. Vishwanath and B. Satyanarayana expressing anger and pain at the way they were being treated.

Such exclusions have also angered the supporters of the said leaders, with ANI reporting acts of protests being carried out by the supporters of Ramalinga Reddy and Roshan Baig:

Incidentally, such a dissent comes after reports of widening cracks between senior state leader DK Shivakumar and the Congress high command, which categorically asked him to not come to Delhi.

It has also been reported how SR Patil the working President of Karnataka North Congress had submitted his resignation by supposedly taking responsibility for the poor performance of his party in the state.
