Bengaluru: Siddaramaiah or D K Shivakumar as next CM – Tussle within Congress continues


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jun 24: The tussle to get projected as the next chief minister (CM) of Karnataka is heating up between Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president, D K Shivakumar, and leader of the legislature party, Siddaramaiah. The Congress high command is expected to intervene to resolve the situation arising out of this friction.

MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy, said that the party will win between 130 and 150 seats if the election is fought under the leadership of Siddaramaiah. He said that the Congress leaders will join together and meet the high command to pressurize the central leadership to project Siddaramaiah as the next chief minister.

Another MLA Rayappa, remarked that Shivakumar has age on his side and therefore he can wait. He favoured Siddaramaiah to become the next chief minister.

Shivakumar in the meantime said that he is not in a hurry to become the CM and his priority is to bring the party back to power. He said that the race is to bring down the BJP government and restore the power back to the Congress party. He added that he is ready to become a stepping stone to see his party rising to power.

The party high command is likely to summon Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar to Delhi for personal discussions. The party is thinking of instructing them to ask their supporters not to make any public statements on the issue. There is also the likelihood of the disciplinary committee of the party serving notices to MLAs who have discussed this matter in public.

MP D K Suresh, said that the genuine Congressmen and their leaders wholeheartedly work to strengthen the party's organizational set up while those who migrated from other parties create confusion. He said that it is up to the national leadership to take action. State BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel, said that there is fight between the original Congressmen and those who migrated from other parties as the original Congressmen are not accepting Siddaramaiah's leadership.

    Mr DKS has support mainly among Vokkaliga community. but the Vokkaliga pie has to be shared between Shivakumar & Kumarasamy. The kuruba community is another big Community who are more likely to stand behind Siddu. Moreover Siddu is comparatively better placed when it comes to minority votes. So it seems Siddu has better prospects compared to DKShi.

    Will congress get majority on its own in 3 corner fight ? No way. With the current scenario, HDK is more inclined towards BJP. BJP will convince JDS to put strong candidates in all Congress dominant constituencies and split the vote . In return BJp will return the favor where it is weak and split congress vote and help JDS. Dkshi can become CM of Kanakapura and Sidaramiah can become CM of Badami, like their PM of Wayanad.

    This type will make Congress still worst. My opinion is if any not interested among both, must come out openly and announce the name of the next CM. If siddu don't want CM post he must come out openly and declare DKS name. And DKS also do the same announcement. Matter finished.

    4 prominent groups are dominant in Karnataka politics and this is well known - to all - 1)Backward or the AHINDA group which presently Mr Siddu appears to be dominant apart from MR Parameshwar - MR KHARGE ------- 2)Brahmins -- Possibly MR Dinesh G RAO ----- 30Vokkaliga- DKS - & 4) Lingayat - SS - MR PATIL etc --- So MLA's leaning to each & muster MAX --will decide- CM --(with incentives ) -- THE BASIS IS ---IN KARNATAKA' s political history from which groups--- CM 's have emerged --

    The continuous rout in elections, have caused havoc within the grand old Congress party. The implosion is evident in Rajashtan, Punjab n now visible even in Karnataka. The party which ruled absolutely for decades, is on life support provided by regional and radicalized Islamic parties... There has to be course correction immediately, else it is certain to vanish into the pages of history !!!!

    Last time, Parameshwar did all the hard work and Sidhu became the CM, made Congress to lose miserably in the next election. Now DKS is doing all the hardwork, we do not want the communal Sidhu to be the CM again. I think DKS will make a good CM. (Corruption accepted, even he gulums 20%, 80% will go for developments).
