Bengaluru: Siddaramaiah feels ending alliance would be in party's interests


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 20: All India Congress Committee president, Rahul Gandhi, has been trying to save the coalition government in Karnataka at any cost, and has expressed his displeasure at the dissenting notes emanating from various quarters about the inability of the two partners to gel with each other. Still, reports say that former chief minister and chairman of the coalition government's coordination committee, Siddaramaiah, has placed his assessment before the party high command in which he has expressed the view that ending the alliance with the JD(S) would be in the best interests of the party.

Siddaramaiah strongly feels that if the current truck with the JD(S) is allowed to continue in the state, Congress party will suffer a setback. "It would be in the interests of the party not to allow this coalition government to survive further. If it has to continue, a Congress leader can be made the chief minister," he has advocated. It is also said that he has told the party's national leadership in no uncertain words that the party cannot expect to make any gain in Lok Sabha election because of the electoral alliance with the JD(S).

Still, Rahul Gandhi has stuck to his view that the coalition government should continue. On Sunday, he held prolonged discussions with the state leaders who were summoned to New Delhi. After taking stock of the current political scenario in Karnataka, Rahul in no uncertain terms, informed the leaders that he wants them to work for the continuance of the alliance as well as the coalition government.

Leader of the Congress parliamentary party in the Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge, Siddaramaiah, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president, Dinesh Gundu Rao, deputy chief minister, Dr G Parameshwara, and water resources minister, D K Shivakumar, had taken part in the deliberations. Rahul Gandhi reportedly expressed his displeasure at the verbal barbs directed by leaders of both the parties at each other during the elections.

He is said to have told the state party leaders that the alliance needs to be nurtured even after the Lok Sabha election result is announced. He promised to take up problems if any his party leaders are facing, with Kumaraswamy and Deve Gowda personally. This assurance came in the backdrop of Deve Gowda's complaint to Rahul that dissident Congress leaders might topple the government after the results are announced.

Rahul Gandhi also is said to have expressed his strong reservation on the tweet made by Siddaramaiah about replacement of the chief minister. But Siddaramaiah stood his ground and justified the stand taken by him, it is said.

Siddaramaiah brought to the notice of Rahul Gandhi the fact that JD(S) leaders have not been giving importance or due weightage to Congress legislators since the coalition government came into being, which has angered Congress MLAs. He said that the alliance has hit the Congress most in Old Mysore region of the state, and expressed the apprehension about the organizational network of the party suffering badly in the coming days because of the alliance. Dinesh Gundu Rao is also said to have come in support of what Siddaramaiah said at the meeting.

    If cong wants to be like in AP and telangana they can continue with jds. when with 37 mlas jds can become cm why cant siddu become cm with 80 mlas. Not to forget the secret alliance b/w jds and bjp which helped both parties in about 20-25 seats. In 2014, cong in karnataka had won 9seats which was highest in india. this time unlikely they can retain it. Only a pappu type ppl will continue allaince with jds in such case.

    I feel pity for the grand old Congress party.
    With respect to Karnataka, the entry of Siddaramayya to Congress initiated the downfall of Congress. Elevating him to the CM post was the biggest mistake. While on power he implemented so many divisive schemes which are in fact anti- Congress, he is the reason for poll debacle in the last assembly elections. Remove Siddaramayya and I bet, Congress will resurface in Karnataka.

    at the national level, remove Rahul Gandhi or any Gandhi family members from top posts, let there be a democracy in the party, automatically Congress will come to power in the next elections.

    Cong in karnataka is only because of siddu. If he isn't there its just a pack ot cards and may even find difficult to win 20 seats. He has support of more than 40 mlas. Cong doesn't have any vote bank except for ahinda and that's mainly siddu votebank not congress votebank. with tacit understanding with jds and bjp in assembly elections and almost all agencies working against the siddu he was able to increase voteshare by 2 percent which cong was not able to do in so many years even during bjp-kjp split...

    Being a Congress supporter, I too felt that the alliance was not a good move by the party in the state. It was a very suicidal. Moreover even dug its grave. The party lost all its self respect due to this initiative. It made Cong look like a desperate man to cling on a twig for survival as it drowned. Every week for the past year or so had some issue or the other in the coalition. Ex CM was made to work as an admin assistant for the Gowda family.

    The Gowda family reaped the maximum due to the alliance. Mrs, HDk won , the grandchildren are making their entry. It was a good launch pad for them. Where as Congi leaders who had toiled for the past 5 years garnered votes and won elections were sidelined by the party only to make JDS leadership happy. I know of a Congi leader who was made to wait for 9 hours for a JDS guy to show up and eventually cancel the meeting. I dont think Cong will win in the state if there are re-elections.

    According to me BS cannot become CM or lead karnataka from fore front. Because he crossed 75 years age which is mandatory in BJP and because of this age limit leaders like Advani, Jaswanth Singh, Yashwanth Sinha, Murali Manohar Joshi sidelined! . So he will be sent to old age home soon where andram was admitted. Also BS is the person who formed KJP (Kereng jenara party) after defecting BJP for stepping down from CM post due to corruption charges! According to me his own and ours too scion VV is the best choice!
