JD-Congress government led by Kumara Swamy again landed into troubles as two independent MLAs withdrew their support to the government.
Two Independent MLAs, Nagesh and R Shankar, withdrew their support from the Kumara Swamy government in Karnataka today. They wrote to Governor Vajhubhai Rudhubhai Vala, and informed that they are withdrawing support with immediate effect. Actually one of these two MLAs, Shankar was earlier the forest, environment and ecology minister in the Kumaraswamy Cabinet but lost his ministry in recent cabinet shuffle by Kumara Swamy. Shankar spoke to media and said that he had done his best as a cabinet minister but the government did not let him continue his service.
Before this episode, another congress leader Shivakumar alleged BJP is luring 3 of their MLAs and trying to collapse JD-Congress government. Even though there is no immediate threat, Kumara Swamy government is definitely walking on a tight rope and the situations may turn upside down anytime.
