Congress is in power in Karnataka with an alliance with JD(S), where the H. D. Kumaraswamy from JD(S) is the CM. Despite being the larger partner, Congress allowed JD(S) to lead the government after the assembly elections in 2018 resulted in a hung assembly. The relationship between the two alliance partners remains troubled as the CM keeps complaining about interference and non-cooperation by Congress.
The Karanata Congress is also grappling with the problem of dissidence, as several party MLAs are rumoured to be contemplating joining the BJP. Yesterday the party had suspended senior party leader Roshan Baig alleging anti-party activities. Baig is an AICC member, and recently he had spoken against the state leadership of the party.
