Karnataka crisis: Trouble mounts for Congress as Deve Gowda says he has been in pain over alliance with Congress

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. 

Former Prime Minister and Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy’s father HD Deve Gowda has now expressed displeasure over the JD(S)-Congress alliance in Karnataka.

Deve Gowda said that it has been six months since HD Kumaraswamy swore-in as the chief minister and “all kinds of things have happened in these six months.” Sending out a strong message to the coalition partner Congress, he said that this is not the way to run a coalition government if every day you need to request them not to make unparliamentary remarks.

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.

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.
