“You have been observing the developments in the state for over a fortnight, BJP leaders have been disturbing the smooth functioning of the coalition government. If the BJP continues to destabilise the government, I will give a call to the people to riot against it,” threatened Kumaraswamy.
According to the reports, The Karnataka Chief Minister issued these threats after he accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of using military planes to poach his coalition government MLAs in a recent speech.

The Chief Minister also threatened to revive all the old cases against BS Yeddyurappa by ordering investigations into alleged scams committed during the latter’s tenure as Chief Minister. “If you (Yeddyurappa) dig too much (into our affairs), then we too have many things at our disposal. Do not instigate me to lose my patience. I have my government and can take the extreme decision. Don’t I have the authority to do whatever I can? I caution him to be careful”, said the angry Chief Minister.
The opposition BJP reacted to Kumaraswamy’s threats saying that Kumaraswamy is the only politician in the history of the nation who asked his supporters to go on riots and referred to him as a “disgrace” to the state. They also urged the police officials to register a Suo moto case on Kumaraswamy.
Kumaraswamy is probably the only politician in history of this nation who openly asked his supporters to go on riots in the state of Karnataka. Such politicians are a disgrace to this state & threat to national security. @CPBlr should register suo Moto case on Kumaraswamy & act.

The JDS-Congress coalition government was formed in Karnataka after the BJP failed to form the government despite being the single largest party. It seems that everything isn’t going well for the Kumaraswamy government, as cracks have appeared to be widened in the alliance.
