Congress’s Breakfast Meet As Karnataka Ruling Coalition Wobbles


NEW DELHI: Karnataka’s coalition government remains in full crisis mode with frantic attempts to persuade rebel lawmakers who quit on Saturday to return. Congress ministers were invited to breakfast this morning by their party leader G Parameshwara, the Deputy Chief Minister. Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy cut short his US holiday and got down to meetings soon after his return last evening. His meeting with leaders of the coalition partner Congress at a luxury hotel ended just before midnight. The coalition between Mr Kumaraswamy’s Janata Dal Secular and the Congress, which took power last May, has been jolted by the resignation of 11 lawmakers from both parties on Saturday and two Congress MLAs last Monday.
