Karnataka BJP takes potshots at Congress over power-sharing tussle

Bengaluru, May 23 (IANS): Karnataka BJP on Tuesday took potshots at the newly-formed government over the statements by Congress party leaders on power-sharing.

"Shivakumar will never become CM. Siddaramaiah will never allow him to become the CM," the BJP commented on Twitter.

"M.B. Patil through his statement (Siddaramaiah will be CM for full tenure) has sent a direct warning to D.K. Shivakumar. However, even after the Congress has obtained a majority, there are no signs that this government is going to be stable after seeing all the developments in this regard," the party remarked.

The BJP has dubbed the Congress government as 'ATM sarkar'. "It is a tragedy for the state that this government is formed with only the condition of supplying funds to the high command and it is going to be the priority," the saffron party claimed.

The BJP has also tagged the video of cabinet minister M.B. Patil in which he announced that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is going to complete the five-year tenure and there is no power-sharing.

The statements of M.B. Patil has triggered a row in the state. Reacting to the row, Shivakumar on Tuesday curtly stated that he should not be disturbed. Shivakumar looked disturbed and maintained distance from media persons.

When his statements triggered a row and raised speculation in political corridors, M.B. Patil on Tuesday said that he has not made any personal comments over the issue. "I have reiterated what senior leaders announced in the press conference," he said.

Sources said that Shivakumar is upset over the remarks and his media statement 'don't disturb me' was aimed at M.B. Patil.

Priyank Kharge, a cabinet minister, reacting over the statement, explained that the statements on power-sharing by M.B. Patil was irrelevant. "No one knows the details of the discussion between them. It is known only to CM Siddaramaiah, DyCM D.K. Shivakumar, Karnataka in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala and AICC General Secretary K.C. Venugopal.

"The legislature meeting did not discuss power sharing. I don't know what information M.B. Patil has it. I can tell what I know," he maintained.

Siddaramaiah got miffed at the questions of the media about power-sharing at the Delhi airport last week and asked the media on who gave them the information on this?

Siddaramaiah is known for bulldozing feudal, majoritarian decisions and fully stands with Dalits and OBCs. However, it is going to be difficult for him to take unilateral decisions this time as Shivakumar, representing the dominant Vokkaliga community, is the Deputy Chief Minister and state party chief.

    Bjps frustration is at it's peak, very soon bjp will itself have leadership issues, instead of setting their house in order they talk of congress. Bjp still cannot digest that their Supreme leader was rejected.

    Five guarantees promised by Congress is nothing but bribery in advance. Even though the top leaders of Congress have agreed for the implementation of five guarantees to each and every family , now slowly majority are getting excluded due to the new terms and conditions. Any way we are looking for a clean and development based governance.

    When will Coastal Karnataka learn to go with the tide? Religious Beliefs are personal which can not be plucked off from us by anyone. What is required is respect for each other. No need to destroy religious places. Religion is personal and must not be exposed to the streets. Peace will prevail always if we keep our traditional love and affection in tact. BJP did all wrong by misusing religion in our region. Why they bother to talk about Congress. Allow them 5 years. If they fail some one else will take over.

    Inspite of lot of chest thumping, throwing money like running water on media, getting all kinds of High powered Pistonsless double engines, BJP lost the election miserabley., which they find difficult to digest. Now trying to create confusions some or other way, so that the new government will have some kind of trouble. Unfortunately they're unable to buy the MLAs under operation Kamala. Jai ho Congress... Jai ho Siddhuji... Jai ho DKShiji.

    That is related to congress. Why you are bothered. You lost and lost forever. Just wait and see the improvement in the state. Let Siddaramayya CM or D K Shivkumar C M that bothers them. Why you bother. Nobody knows the future. ONly God knows. You also didnot knew that you will lose the battle. God is with them because they treat all religion equal.
