Though the BJP failing since a year to topple the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka, which is surviving with a simple majority, the Congress leadership is worrying that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi returns back in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls, it would be difficult for them to continue in power.
Many Congress leaders in Karnataka are expecting that immediately after election results, the BJP may revive its “Operation Kamala” campaign attracting large number of Congress MLAs to their side. Even, they are suspecting the stand being taken by JD(S), if the Congress fails to make impressive gains in other states too.
Former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah today admitted that the BJP is likely to revive its “Operation Kamala” to topple the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka after the ongoing general election. However, he tried to put a brave face that it will not succeed in its effort.
Siddaramaiah, who is also Chairman for the Coalition Coordination Committee asserted that there is no “threat” to the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) government, which is “very much stable” and functioning smoothly without hiccups.
Not only the Karnataka Congress leaders, even AICC leadership is also seems to be worried on the fate of their governments in Karnataka, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, where the number are not so comfortable for Congress to survive BJP manoeuvres.
