The Congress-JD(S) unholy alliance in Karnataka seems to be on the verge of a break up as Chief Minister Kumaraswamy today said that he is ready to step down since Congress MLAs consider only former chief minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah as their chief minister.

Congress tried to pacify cry-baby Kumaraswamy by sending show cause notice to MLA who spoke against the CM.

8. Siddaramaiah outrages the modesty of Jameela who was questioning him, Congress leaders defend him

In a despicable instance of outraging a woman’s modesty, former Karnataka Chief Minister and senior leader the Congress party snatched at the dupatta of a woman, pulling it away from her body, in an attempt to intimidate her.

At the event in Mysuru, the woman in the video was trying to register a complaint with former CM Siddaramaiah regarding the absence of his son Yathindra, an MLA of Varuna constituency. The woman complained that she was unable to reach Yathindra which angered Siddaramaiah.

Gabbard in her op-ed written for a local publication, the Religious News Services, described the campaign against her and her supporters and donors as “profiling and targeting of Hindu Americans and ascribing to them motives without any basis”.
