When asked, Kumaraswamy said,” If they want to continue with the same thing, I am ready to step down. They are crossing the line”, as quoted by the ANI. He further added,” Congress leaders have to watch all that issues, I’m not the concerned person for it. They’re crossing the line…Congress leaders must control their MLAs”.
This comes after some Congress legislators, such as ST Somashekhar, MTB Nagaraj, claimed at a program that they prefer Siddaramaiah as their Chief Minister and not HD Kumaraswamy.
Karnataka deputy chief minister G Parameshwara, reacting to the whole ordeal, said,” Siddaramaiah has been best CM. He is our CLP leader. For the MLA, he is the CM. He has expressed his opinion. What is wrong in that? We are all happy with him”
The coalition government has been under controversy ever since it was formed seven months ago.
