HD Kumaraswamy: The eternal whiner

The onus of the accountability squarely lies with Kumaraswamy and he cannot escape it by pushing the blame on his coalition partners through his unfortunate laments.

Ever since the Congress-JDS alliance formed a government in the southern state of Karnataka, there has been a perpetual spree of lament on the governance issues of the state expressed by the incumbent Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy.

In a recent development, HD Kumaraswamy answering a question raised by an India Today scribe said, “If I had got the clear majority, I would have given a better government to Karnataka.” When asked if his remarks are made on the differences between Congress and JDS, Kumaraswamy quickly rubbished them claiming that his statements are made on the functioning of the coalition government. He also added that If he had gotten the majority, he would have implemented his vision for the state, which is not possible under the coalition government.

This is not the first instance when Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy has bemoaned about his situation of leading a straitjacketed coalition government. A few days back, HD Kumaraswamy wailed that he is working like a clerk and not like a CM due to Congress interference. Earlier in July 2018, expressing his unhappiness over the coalition government Kumaraswamy had cried saying he was unhappy and swallowing the poison of a coalition government.

This leads one to believe that the alliance between Congress and JDS has been an opportunistic alliance. What is, however, disturbing for the people is to see a CM of a state continuously whining about his wretched situation instead of taking concrete steps to end his misery. It appears that the lure of power is resisting Kumaraswamy from calling the quits from the alliance and bearing the slights thrown at him by the Congress party.

HD Kumaraswamy should respect the faith the people of Karnataka have shown in him and take effective measures to bring to fruition his vision of Karnataka. He should no longer disappoint his people by acquiescing to Congress hegemony and later lamenting on it as an attempt to push the blame of incompetence on the coalition government. Being the CM of the state, he is in the saddle to take decisions he deems appropriate for the public welfare.

The onus of the accountability squarely lies with Kumaraswamy and he cannot escape it by pushing the blame on his coalition partners through his unfortunate laments. Kumaraswamy should openly oppose Congress dominance and send them a message that his self-esteem is inviolable.
