Working like a clerk, claims Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy; alleges heavy interference from Congress


It seems that all is not well between the JD(S)-Congress coalition in Karnataka. Fresh reports have emerged about the alleged differences between the coalition after CM HD Kumaraswamy, during a party meeting, told JD(S) MLAs and MLCs that he was working like a clerk and not as a CM as he was facing “heavy interference” from the Congress in everything.

The CM claimed that the Congress leaders were forcing him to do “things” which benefits them and added that he is “forced to listen to them”.

According to a report by News18, Kumaraswamy said he was working under a lot of pressure and alleged that Congress expect him to behave like a subordinate.

This is not the first time that the CM has aired his grievances about the problem he is facing after forming an alliance with the Congress in the state.

Last year in July, Kumaraswamy broke down during a public meeting and said he was not a happy man. The CM compared himself to Lord Shiva who drank poison to save the world. The CM was also reportedly not happy about the number of seats his party had won in the state assembly elections. The Congress, however, denied any rift between the two coalition partners and clarified that “all is well”.

Political analysts have said that the coalition between the Congress and the JD(S) may collapse after the Lok Sabha elections scheduled to be held early this year.
