State set for aggressive political tussle
By The Hindu 21-May-2019
Close on the heels of the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party seeing an opportunity to bring down the government, the ruling coalition too is learnt to have decided to adopt an “aggressive” approach to tackle such efforts by the BJP.
“Hitherto, we were defensive while trying to safeguard the government from the efforts to woo our MLAs. But now, we have decided that offence is the best form of defence,” sources close to Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy said, while referring to the BJP leaders’ claims that several MLAs from the ruling combine were ready to shift political loyalties.
Such an aggressive posture of the ruling coalition leaders has even triggered speculation that they may not be averse to making efforts to woo some of the disgruntled BJP MLAs. Though the elections were held for the Lok Sabha, its results are expected to impact power equations in the Karnataka Assembly owing to differences within the ruling coalition partners and efforts by the BJP to capitalise on such differences.
