Bengaluru: After the Congress-JD(S) coalition government in Karnataka headed by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy collapsed, three Congress leaders are in the race for the post of Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly.
As per the sources, CLP leader Siddaramaiah, former deputy chief minister Dr G. Parameshwar and former water resources minister D.K. Shivakumar have thrown their hats in the ring. However, the frontrunner is Siddaramaiah who has the experience of working as an opposition leader when the BJP was in power about a decade ago.
The Congress-JD(S) coalition government in Karnataka headed by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy collapsed on Monday night capping a 14-month-long turbulent tenure, losing a vote of confidence in the Assembly, setting the stage for the BJP’s return to power in the southern state.
