The Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) alliance in Karnataka is, seemingly, going through a tough phase as the Chief Minister of Karnataka, HD Kumaraswamy, is not looking happy with the Congress’ Member of Legislative Assembly (MLAs). The alliance is going to take a major turn as CM Kumaraswamy threatened Congress, on Monday, to quit his alliance with the latter if they don’t control their MLAs. This outburst was a reaction to the statement made by the followers of the Congress leader and the former chief minister of Karnataka, Siddaramiah, on Sunday.

They also expressed openly that they consider their leader, Siddaramaiah, as the Chief Minister of Karnataka. Siddaramaiah, who was present in the event, reportedly, agreed with their comments and said that he would have completed the development work if he was given another chance to become the Chief Minister.

Congress leader, Mallikarjun Kharge, also stepped-in to clarify and clean the mess created by his party leaders. He said that these things create confusion in the alliance and MLAs should not speak openly on such issues and speaking against the wishes of high command is also not advisable. “They (Karnataka Congress party MLAs) should not react openly to the media. We have all come together to fight BJP-RSS. It is not advisable for any member to speak against wishes of the party high command. Such incidents will create confusion in the coalition,” Kharge told media while advising his party leaders to behave in line with the commands from the party high command.
