BJPGeneral Secretary P Muralidhar Rao Friday said the absence of four Congress MLAs, including former Karnataka minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, at the crucial Congress Legislature Party meeting here clearly shows the chinks prevalent in the country’s grand old party. “The fact of the matter is the grand old party of India is in total disarray. Congress is facing some internal problems, therefore they have convened CLP meeting to display an apparent show of strength,” Rao, who is also incharge of BJP affairs in Karnataka, told PTI.
His remarks come in the wake of four Congress MLAs – Umesh Jadhav, Ramesh Jarkiholi and Mahesh Kumathalli and B Nagendra – skipping the CLP meeting. “With this kind of political turmoil in existence, the Kumaraswamy government cannot survive.
The only thing is we cannot say when it would collapse. Whether it would collapse today, tomorrow or three to four months from now. I don’t know,” Rao said. “The way the developments are unfolding are not good for the people of Karnataka,” he said.
