SOME ISSUES WITH CONGRESS OVER PORTFOLIO ALLOCATION: H D KUMARASWAMY
ALLIANCE CABINET EXPANSION EXPANSION NEXT WEEK
Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy today said there are some “issues” on portfolio allocation with his party’s coalition partner Congress but it is not something that will pull down the government.
He also said the expansion of his Cabinet would take place once state Congress leaders get an approval from their high command.
“..Portfolios have not been allocated. There are some issues regarding portfolios, but it is not an issue that will pull down the government…,” Kumaraswamy told reporters here.
Responding to questions on portfolio allocation and demand for a farm loan waiver, he said, “I will try not to take up an issue as a prestige issue and try to solve a problem.. Otherwise I will see. I will not stick to this post, leaving my self esteem.”
Parleys began between the Congress and the JD(S) on the issue of Cabinet expansion soon after Kumaraswamy proved his three-day-old government’s majority on the floor of the Assembly yesterday.
Karnataka Congress leaders today left for New Delhi by a chartered plane to discuss with the high command the issues relating to Cabinet expansion and portfolio allocation.
According to sources, Kumaraswamy had met former chief minister and Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah, Deputy Chief Minister Parameshwara and Congress general secretary in-charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal before they left for Delhi.
The chief minister also clarified that he would not be going to Delhi to meet Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi. “State Congress leaders have to get approval from their central leadership, that’s the reason they are going to Delhi today. Once they come back cabinet expansion will happen smoothly,” he said.
It has already been decided that Congress would have 22 ministers and JDS 12 in the new cabinet.
The state cabinet expansion has become clear that one week’s postponement will be postponed. The growth of the conflict between JDS-Congress has led to this growth.
Chief Minister of the state, Diliwale Bedi, who has consulted with AICC president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday night, has decided to resign. This is also discussed on Sunday. However, none of the allies partner CM Kumaraswamy did not make any decision. There is no end to this crisis unless the account is settled for which party. This is why the coalition government is in the hindrance.
In the midst of this worry, Rahul Gandhi traveled abroad with her mother Sonia Gandhi. They will return to the weekend and get clear picture of the Cabinet expansion. The next minister will be scheduled to be sworn in next Monday.
Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi has been entrusted with AICC leader Ghulam Nabi Azad to resolve account dispute confusion. Kumaraswamy will be heading for Delhi on Monday, led by Azad. DCM D.G. Parameshwara, former CM Siddaramaiah, Congress MP, Mallikarjun Kharge, party state supervisor KC Leaders including Venugopal will be involved.
The caste and regional representation will be prepared by a meeting of Congress vice-presidents in the presence of Ghulam Nabi Azad. The sources have confirmed that the final form will be given after Rahul arrives. State Congress leaders Azad Naidu also addressed the party on Sunday evening in connection with the selection of candidates for the Cabinet expansion and the Voting Council. Many of the cabinet ministers stayed in Delhi and met High Command Representatives and Siddaramaiah.
What’s wrong with the start?
JD (S) chief HD Deve Gowda inaugurated the Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency campaign for the alliance. Deve Gowda said. CM Kumaraswamy responded by saying that Rajarajeshwari’s decision was left to the people. I have been hoping to get moral support to work on it, “he said. This raises a debate on whether the alliance is getting worse in the beginning.
Rope for financial account
Relationship with the financial account has begun. When the coalition government was in the past, the DCM was in charge of the Department of Economic Affairs. The Congress has been forced to adopt the same formula this time too. CM Kumaraswamy has said that he will have to keep the financial account as he has to make a significant decision like farmers’ debt. Despite the fact that the DMM has a financial account, the Congress has taken the stand to be with this department. It is said that the hormone pressure has increased.
There is a competition between home, water resources, public utilities, fuel, heavy industry, rural development, agriculture and other major parties. Even though the government has come into existence, DCM is running out of account. So Congress leaders have brought pressure on them to immediately take responsibility for a major department. It is Congress’s idea that he should be the chief minister’s post after leaving Kumaraswamy for the first 30 months. This should also be discussed. This factor is said to be a cabinet structure and will decide what will be the alliance attachment in the coming days.
Speaking in Bangalore, Kumaraswamy said, “There is no confusion in the sharing of accounts. The Congress has asked the Finance Department. Who wants to see who comes. 12:22 The decision to issue a ministerial position under the formula is decided. Siddaramaiah responded in Delhi saying no confusion.
Invitation is not a hint
The PM was also invited to attend a meeting led by Rahul Gandhi. However, it was said that he had moved back to Delhi at the moment. The clarification on this is clear, “I have not been invited to come to Delhi. At 8 am on Saturday, I spoke to Rahul Gandhi on the phone. I am happy to go for a trip abroad. The Cabinet expansion has not been proposed at this point, “he said.
“Once discussed with Rahul Gandhi, the debate on the return of a foreign trip will be discussed once again, and the cabinet will be created without confusion,” Kumar Kumaraswamy and DCM Parameshwar discussed the matter. “If I find myself, I will also be involved in this debate.” – Siddaramaiah, Former CM
