Bengaluru: CM Kumaraswamy laments compulsion to follow Congress diktat

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jan 10: "I have been running the government like a tight rope walk. I am compelled to follow the wishes of Congress party. I alone can feel the pain I am going through. Still, I have been tolerating everything and moving ahead," lamented chief minister (CM), H D Kumaraswamy speaking at the JD(S) legislature party meeting held here on Tuesday.

He laid bare the day-to-day pressure he has been handling in running the government. At the same time, he expressed his resolve to remain silent on all issues till the Lok Sabha election, and asked the party functionaries to cooperate with him. He also turned emotional when speaking, at which he was consoled by his father and JD(S) national president, H D Deve Gowda.

Deve Gowda has barred party leaders from airing their grievances openly relating to the coalition government. He reiterated this at the said meeting too, sources said. Speaking to media persons after holding a preparatory meeting relating to Lok Sabha election at the party office on Wednesday January 9, Deve Gowda said that he has asked party leaders not to behave or talk in a way that adversely affects the standing of the coalition government. He also said that a decision about entering into understanding for Lok Sabha election with other parties will be taken at the national executive being convened on January 20 and 30. "We have joined hands with the Left Front in Kerala and Congress in Karnataka. Therefore a decision on electoral understanding will be taken at the executive. As of now, the coalition government does not face any major issue. There are minor issues which would be sorted out in normal course. Leaders of both the parties will sit together and settle these issues," he explained.
