Congress achieves some success as Nagaraju relents
By Thehindu 14-Jul-2019
The Assembly session is set to resume on Monday after the weekend break and the Supreme Court on Tuesday is set to hear a plea by the JD(S) and Congress MLAs who have resigned.
The weekend is a short window for last-minute effort by the coalition government to hang on to power and for the BJP to firm up its strategy to topple the government with the ruling dispensation’s numbers dwindling. Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has already announced that he would seek a trust vote.
The sustained efforts of Congress leaders paid off late on Saturday when Housing Minister N. Nagaraju (MBT), one of the MLAs who had identified himself with the rebels, announced that he would take back his resignation.
The day began very early for Congress Minister and “troubleshooter” D.K. Shivakumar who landed at the house of Mr. Nagaraju. It was a long negotiation to woo him back into the Congress fold, with CLP leader Siddaramaiah and the Chief Minister too getting involved in it. An effort was also made to woo back rebel MLAs K. Sudhakar and Ramalinga Reddy.
