No internal rift, ruling Cong is united in Karnataka, asserts CM Siddaramaiah

The debate on the names of Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar becoming the chief minister after the state polls has fuelled the speculations.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday denied any internal rift within the ruling Congress in the state, and asserted that the party was united.

 

“Where is the rift within us? Is there a fight among us? They (BJP) saying it is different, they say it for politics... where is the internal rift?” Siddaramaiah asked the media, responding to a question on state BJP leader’s statements that the Congress government will fall because of its internal rifts.

 

Reacting to Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s reported statements regarding efforts to replicate the ‘Maharashtra model’ to topple the Congress government in Karnataka, the CM said, “They (BJP leaders) have been making such claims for a year now. He (Shinde) is Maharashtra Chief Minister, instead of speaking about our government, let him save his government first,” he added.

 

BJP President BY Vijayendra on Monday said his party will not make any attempt to pull down this government, but he cannot now itself predict the kind of unrest that will get created within the ruling Congress, after the Lok Sabha poll results are declared.

 

There was stiff competition between Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar for the CM’s post after the declaration of Assembly election results in May last year, and the Congress had managed to convince the latter and made him the deputy chief minister.

 

Shivakumar has made no secret of his ambition to become Chief Minister, while Siddaramaiah had sought public support during the Lok Sabha polls so that the Congress wins maximum number of seats in the state, which would strengthen his position.

 

“The atmosphere is good, the Congress party has taken this election seriously. We had announced candidates six months prior, so candidates got time to meet the voters,” he said, adding that there will be no effect of the BJP-JD(S) alliance on the MLC polls, as they had been in alliance in the Parliamentary polls too.

 

Asked whether the pen-drive case (sex scandal involving JD(S) MP Prajwal Revanna) will have its impact on MLC polls, particularly in the old Mysuru region, he said, “Pen-drive case has nothing to do with the polls, as voters here are graduates and teachers. They are politically aware voters, they have the strength to decide who is right and who is not, they do the comparison of Congress governments achievement here and the BJP at the Centre.”
