Bengaluru: The widening breach between Congress-JD(S) alliance in Karnataka is expected to increase further as Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Monday, threatened to step down if Congress MLAs continue to attack him.

Reacting on a public event on Sunday, when some MLAs of Siddaramiah camp called him as their CM, Kumaraswamy said that they are crossing the line and if it will continue like this, he will step down for the post of Chief Minister.

Kumar appeared to be quite furious after this incident and asked Congress to take account of this action.

When asked about the 'Congress MLAs' statement that Siddaramaiah is their leader', Kumaraswamy said that Congress leaders have to keep a watch on these issues, as he’s not the concerned person for it. He also said that if Congress people want to continue with it, then he will readily step down.

Siddaramaiah supporters on Sunday criticised the JD(S) leader by saying that no development work has taken place in his government even after seven months of the government's formation.

Attacking the JD(S) government during an event yesterday, Congress MLA ST Somashekhar said: "It is seven months since the coalition government came to power, but development work has not yet taken off. Had Siddaramaiah got another five-year term, we would have seen real development.

Siddaramaiah also supported the statement by saying that he would have completed the development work if he had got another term as chief minister.

While Congress kept mum on this incident, Kumarswamy seemed to be quite displeased after this episode. He said that they are crossing their limits and Congress needs to keep a check on their MLAs otherwise the Congress-JD(S) coalition will suffer badly.
