HD Kumaraswamy.

Indicating fresh strains in the alliance between the Congress and Janata Dal (Secular), the Karnataka chief minister, HD Kumaraswamy, on Monday, said he is ready to step down if the Congress does not control its MLAs. His furious reaction came after a ruling Congress MLA demanded that Siddaramaiah be made the chief minister again.

He said, “Congress leaders have to watch all that issues. I am not the concerned person for it. If they want to continue with it, I am ready to step down. They are crossing the line … Congress leaders must control their MLAs.”

The development comes after MLA ST Somashekhar, chairman of the Bengaluru Development Authority, claimed at an event, on Sunday, that development works in the state had come to a halt.

Responding, Kumaraswamy said, “Our government has taken up projects worth Rs 1 lakh crore, including suburban train, elevated corridor and peripheral ring road.”
