The alliance and bonhomie in Karnataka between the Congress and HD Kumaraswamy’s Janata Dal-Secular proved short-lived and now, ahead of the by-elections in the state, knives are out. Both parties have fielded candidates for Bengaluru’s Rajarajeshwarinagar assembly seat and sharp comments have been flying from both sides. On Wednesday, it was the JDS chief and Chief Minister of the erstwhile alliance government HD Kumaraswamy, who targeted the Congress over the recent violence in DG Halli and KJ Halli areas of Bengaluru. The violence, which took place in August, had so far provided ammunition to the BJP, with party leaders accusing Congressmen of involvement after the house of a Congress MLA, Akhanda Srinivas Murthy, was set ablaze. Kumaraswamy, who was accompanying his party candidate V Krishnamurthy for his nomination filing, said the “real picture” has now emerged.
