Bengaluru: The political crisis in Karnataka is deepening after the resignation of two Congress MLAs Ramesh Jarkiholi and Anand Singh. A new crisis has arisen before Congress. After the resignation of two MLAs, the government in the state is running with the support of independents and is currently in majority. If these two MLAs change the party, there will be no choice but to resign before Kumaraswamy.
On the other hand, the Congress has blamed the BJP for the whole development. Congress veteran Siddaramaiah said in a statement on the resignation of the MLAs on Tuesday, "The BJP is offering money and power to the MLAs. The BJP wants to topple the Kumaraswamy government in the state but they will not succeed. At the moment there is no crisis for the Karnataka government. Both the MLAs will not join the BJP."
On the other hand, Karnataka Congress President Dinesh Gundu Rao admitted in a press conference on Monday that some more MLAs could resign from the party. However, he also blamed the BJP for the entire political crisis. "Some more MLAs may resign now, but that doesn't mean the government will collapse," Rao said. They are leaving the party because they have been intimidated, blackmailed and offered a good amount of money."
