There is no change going to happen in Karnataka at the moment, command will remain in the hands of Siddaramaiah for a stable government

YEARS

When the Congress came to power in 2023, amid the power struggle for the post of Chief Minister, there were several rounds of lobbying and rallying of MLAs between the Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar camps in Delhi to show which leader had the maximum support of the MLAs.

Speculations are rife that a change of power is on the way in Congress-led Karnataka. However, Congress internal sources have revealed that no such move will take place until the current government completes 18 months of rule. The party high command has decided not to take any decision until the by-elections in the three assembly constituencies of Channapatna, Sandur and Shiggaon are completed. A senior leader explained that the government has been formed to give stable governance to the people and ensure that guarantees are given and development takes place. The rest is a media creation.

When the Congress came to power in 2023, amid the power struggle for the post of Chief Minister, there were several rounds of lobbying and rallying of MLAs between the Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar camps in Delhi to show which leader has the maximum support of the MLAs. It is said that Siddaramaiah managed to get the support of more than 60 per cent of the MLAs in his favour and hence it was decided to give him the post.

However, there was also an unwritten agreement to hand over the reins to Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar after 20 months, who had been angling for the post since the Congress won the 2023 Karnataka Assembly elections with a landslide victory of 135 seats. The ruling BJP was reduced to 66 seats and the JDS won 19 seats. Siddaramaiah is considered the most influential Ahinda leader and the man who worked for the upliftment of Dalits, as demonstrated by his rule between 2013-18. The camp supporting him claims that he stands out as an effective administrator and mass leader compared to many other Congress leaders.
