BENGALURU: Amid reports of cracks in the congress JD(s) alliance in Karnataka, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Thursday has asked everyone to have trust in him.
“I am telling all the people in this state to believe in me. Earlier I had said, I will resign due to some developments. Few people talks against me, that’s why I said so”, he said.
On Monday Kumaraswamy had said that he is ready to step down after Congress MLAs reportedly said: “Siddaramaiah is their leader’.
“Congress MLAs say Siddaramaiah is their leader, Congress leaders have to watch all that issues, I’m not the concerned person for it. If they want to continue with it, I’m ready to step down. They’re crossing the line. Congress leaders must control their MLAs”, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had said.
This comes after some Congress legislators, such as ST Somashekar, MTB Nagraj in a Program on Sunday said that they only consider former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as their leader and not HD Kumaraswamy.
In the 224-member Assembly, JDS has 37 MLAs and the Congress 80. The Congress-JDS alliance has the support of some Independents in the House where the majority figure is 113 stay in power.
