Karnataka meltdown: After Roshan Baig, another Congress MLA rebels, calls Congress-JDS alliance a blunder

Earlier, Congress MLA Roshan Baig had stirred up a controversy by alleging that the portfolios in the Karnataka State Assembly were sold

Going against his party’s stand Karnataka Congress MLA from Chikkaballapura, K Sudhakar has termed the alliance with the JD(S) as a historical blunder and said that the Congress Party might lose in a number of constituencies due to the alliance.

“The historical blunder of aligning with JD(S) has cost us dearly and you will see that in the results that will come out on May 23. If Congress was in opposition, we would have won more than 50% of the vote share. We will lose out in Southern Karnataka this time and also in the coastal and Maratha region. Significantly, we will lose”, the MLA told The News Minute.

He said that the coalition with JD(S) was an “unholy alliance” and that the Congress gave the party with only 37 MLAs everything on a platter. He called the alliance morally and ethically incorrect.

He even questioned the raising of the issue of EVM manipulation after the exit polls. He took to Twitter to express his dissenting opinion and said that he was confused as to why the EVM issue was being brought up in the conversation about the exit polls. He said that the exit poll results indicate the feeling of the voters at the end of the polling.

The MLA said that exit polls have nothing to do with the EVMs as they are conducted on the polling day. “I have only spoken about exit polls because some people have a difference of opinion on them. I said it had nothing to do EVM tampering because exit polls are conducted on the polling day,” said Sudhakar. He added, “Sometimes they predict it right sometimes and they go wrong, so how can you blame the EVM for that?”

Earlier in the day, senior Karnataka Congress leader Roshan Baig had stirred up a controversy by alleging that the portfolios in the Karnataka State Assembly were sold. Following the exit polls. Baig called Karnataka Congress-in-charge K C Venugopal a buffoon and blamed “Siddaramaiah’s arrogance” and Party President Gundu Rao’s “flop show” for the party’s possible gloomy future in the State.

Baig was served a show-cause notice by the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) for his statements against the Congress-JD(S) alliance. However, he refused to read the notice saying that it was sent on the orders of the people whose incompetencies he had highlighted.
