The Congress – JD ( S) alliance in Karnataka escalated after a comment by Congress MLA . Such was the remark that Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy threatened to step down, saying he never “craved” for power.

His comments a day after a ruling Congress MLA demanded that Siddaramaiah be made the chief minister again. At an event in the city , ST Somashekhar had claimed that development works had come to a grinding halt in parts of the state.

Strongly reacting to the comments, Kumaraswamy said, “If my way of functioning is not acceptable, I am ready to resign. I don’t crave for position.

“Our government has taken up projects worth Rs 1 lakh crore including suburban train, elevated corridor and peripheral ring road,” the chief minister told reporters after dedicating six-coach metro rail on ‘Green Line’ at the Mantri Square Metro Station.

A red-faced Karnataka Congress president Dinesh Gundu Rao, who too was present there, said such statements by the Congress MLAs were not acceptable and a showcause notice would be issued to them.

“Today Rs 8,000 crore worth work is happening. I condemn such public statements and will issue a showcause notice to them,” Rao told reporters. “This morning I saw ST Somashekhar’s statement. It breaches the disciplinary line. The coalition government has done lots of development work in Bengaluru.”
