Karnataka Election: Even after the victory of Congress in Karnataka, there is still suspense regarding the CM. Party leaders are not able to decide who should be elected as CM. Regarding this, the high command of the party is in a state of confusion as to who should be made the CM candidate. Regarding this, the high command has sent observers to Karnataka. Today the observers have had a one to one meeting with all the members after the Legislature Party meeting in Bengaluru. After this they came to the conclusion that all the MLAs should put a chit in a box as to who they want to be their CM. The supervisors have asked all the MLAs for their opinion through chits in the secret box. Let us inform that there are two strong contenders for the post of CM in Karnataka – DK Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah.

Three types of things came to the fore in the meeting

According to sources, three types of things have come to the fore in the meeting with the MLA. Firstly, the opinion of the MLA who is close to both the leaders was that whatever is the decision of the high command, they also have the same opinion. The second MLA who is a supporter of Siddaramaiah has considered Siddaramaiah as his leader and the third one who is a supporter of Shivakumar has considered Shivakumar as his leader. If sources are to be believed, there was more support in the name of Siddaramaiah in this opinion poll. When DK Shivkumar came to know about this, his attitude was seen to have changed slightly since then.

Will the high command give me a birthday present or not- DK

DK Shivakumar after meeting supervisors at Five Star Hotel: I don't know whether the high command will give me a birthday gift or not but the people of Karnataka have blessed me. DK Shivakumar further said that Sonia Gandhi reposed faith in me and I have fulfilled the promise of putting Karnataka in her pocket, the double engine government tortured me a lot. Despite this, I have secured a historic victory for the Congress. Please inform that at 1 pm Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar were to go to Delhi by a special plane but only Siddaramaiah left, but DK Shivakumar delayed citing birthday and worship at home.

Know why the high command does not want to make DK CM

Tell that there is no doubt that in 2019, DK Shivkumar is the biggest character in getting the party a record victory with 135 MLAs by infusing life into the lifeless organization. But still the high command is not in a position to make him the CM at the moment, the reason being that the Lok Sabha elections to be held next year. Let us tell you that Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has already said that by winning these elections, he has won only the battle, the real war is yet to be won, so if DK Shivakumar is made the CM, then Siddaramaiah, who has already been the CM, should be kept out of the cabinet. Will happen.

Siddaramaiah is the voice of minorities, backward and Dalits

Please tell that Siddaramaiah comes from the Kuruba community, whose population is about 8 percent, apart from this, Siddaramaiah is the leader who revived the Ahinda movement in the state, through this movement, Siddaramaiah became the voice of minorities, backward and Dalits. On the other hand, it has happened for the first time in this election that the minorities, backward and Dalits, who have a share of about 40 percent in the population of Karnataka, unitedly voted for the Congress, the credit of which goes to Siddaramaiah somewhere. Keeping Siddaramaiah out of power means that the party may have to bear the displeasure of 40 percent of the population in the Lok Sabha elections, which the party does not want to take at present.

Power sharing only option

DK Shivakumar, on the other hand, comes from the Vokkaliga community. Explain that with 16 percent of the population, this community is the second largest community in the state after Lingayats, DK Shivakumar has also told through the saints of Vokkaliga Math that this victory is theirs, that's why victory should also be tied to their head, if they If CM is not made then Congress may lose Vokkaliga votes. At the same time, there is also a challenge before the party that DK Shivakumar is under investigation for disproportionate assets, making him the CM could be a threat to the party's image. In such a situation, the high command is left with no other option but to keep both happy and power-sharing in view of the Lok Sabha elections.

The party took out the formula of 2 + 3

According to sources, the party has worked out a 2+3 formula keeping in mind the formation of the government and the Lok Sabha without any hassle. For the first 2 years, Siddaramaiah will be made the CM so that 40 percent of the Ahinda votes in the Lok Sabha elections can be made in his court. After this, a Dalit and Lingayat leader including DK Shivakumar will be made deputy CM so that the party will also get the support of Vokkaliga and Lingayat votes in the Lok Sabha elections. After 2 years, DK Shivakumar will be made the CM for the next three years. Along with this, the next election will be fought under his leadership only so that the strength of the organization remains. According to party sources, Siddaramaiah has more or less agreed with this proposal, but since politics is a game of uncertainties, DK Shivakumar is currently not happy about this formula. That's why the efforts to persuade him have intensified in the Congress.
