Congress MLAs who missed the bus to the cabinet continue to give the party a hard time. With senior party leaders unable to pacify them, about 20 to 30 Party MLAs are planning to meet and chalk out their future course of action on June 15, after Ramzan holiday. This was revealed by Chikkaballapur MLA Dr K. Sudhakar.

“AICC president, Rahul Gandhi wants to promote youngsters, but here in Karnataka the party should have promoted real talent. When for decades, Congress and JD(S) workers have fought how can they forget everything and unite at the grassroots now?” he asked.

While former minister H.M. Revanna, who also did not get a cabinet berth, reiterated that he would not quit the Congress party, he expressed serious concern about actress-turned politician Ms Jayamala being inducted into the cabinet.

“She will be the floor leader of the party. Can she handle the pressure of the responsibility?  I doubt it,” he said.

Incidentally Jayamala is the only lady member in Kumaraswamy’s cabinet and she is from the upper house.

Supporters of former minister, and Davangere strongman, Shamanoor Shivashankarappa held a protest outside the residence of KPCC president, Dr G. Parameshwara demanding a cabinet berth for the veteran leader while self-styled god-woman, Maate Mahadevi, urged former minister, M.B. Patil to leave the Congress party for depriving him of a cabinet berth.

Accusing the party of insulting the Lingayats, she claimed it had won 78 seats only because of the community's support. “It would otherwise have won only 28 seats. What did the Congress give it in return? Nothing. Instead it has punished M.B. Patil for spearheading the movement. I request Mr Patil to leave the party on account of this insult,” she added.

In Kalaburgi, Dr Ajay Singh, second son of late chief minister Dharam Singh said, “I have a political legacy and I was an aspirant for a ministerial berth. I’m quite disappointed over the denial of ministerial berth to me,”, said the MLA from Jewargi.

During an interaction with the media , Dr Ajay, who was on his first visit to the constituency after his victory,  however hastened to add that he would not revolt against the party because of the injustice meted out to him, but would continue as a disciplined solider of the party, as his father did.

Dharam Singh was the MLA for many terms from Jewargi.

“When my father was asked to vacate his seat in 1980 after getting elected to the Lok Sabha even before taking oath to enable Mr C.M. Stephen contest, my father resigned without grumbling.  I walk in the footsteps of my father and will not join any group which is now fighting for the ministerial berths”, Dr Ajay said.

A second term MLA, he said that he had not lobbied for the ministerial berth during the tenure of Siddaramaiah as his father asked him to have patience. “Even this time, I did not approach anybody other than Mr Mallikarjun Kharge, who is a father figure for me. I don’t why my name was not considered. But I will continue to seek the blessings of Mr Kharge. I as well as the people of my constituency are confident that he will support me and make me a minister when the remaining six vacancies are filled up”, Dr Ajay stated.
