Rahul Gandhi is more than PM to us: Karnataka Congress chief on Karnataka crisis

The rift between Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) has been widening recently as both parties have tried to outdo each other to grapple as much as power in the coalition government.

Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Working President Eshwar Khandre, displayed new levels of sycophancy towards Congress President Rahul Gandhi by claiming that for Congress workers, Rahul Gandhi is even more than the Prime Minister.

Khandre was referring to the political crisis which is currently underway in Karnataka as the chief minister HD Kumaraswamy as well as his father, HD Deve Gowda have time and again let it known that they are unhappy with the opportunistic alliance of the Congress and JD(S) in Karnataka.

Earlier, few Congress MLAs had gone on record to say that they consider former Karnataka Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah as their chief minister. A visibly upset Kumaraswamy had even offered to step down as the chief minister saying that the Congress MLAs were crossing the line.

Adding to what Karnataka Congress MLAs have been saying, Khandre said that for them (Congress workers), Rahul Gandhi is even more (important) than the PM.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has earlier expressed his unhappiness over the coalition government. A few days back, he had become emotional and said to the party colleagues that he was functioning like a clerk and not like a chief minister because of Congress’ interference in the functioning of the government. Kumaraswamy was also reportedly heard complaining that he is working under “tremendous pressure”.

The rift between Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) has been widening recently as both parties have tried to outdo each other to grapple as much as power in the coalition government. The recent cabinet expansion has further widened the rift, with leaders from both the parties are openly conspiring against each other. In July last year, expressing his unhappiness over the coalition government Kumaraswamy had cried saying he was unhappy and swallowing the poison of a coalition government.

Recently, there were speculations that the coalition may be heading towards a breakup with reports that Kumaraswamy’s brother HD Revanna had met the BJP leaders in Karnataka.
