Karnataka Chief Minister Accuses BJP of Attempting to Topple Government

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of engaging in “Operation Lotus” to destabilize his government ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. In a revealing interview with India Today TV, Siddaramaiah alleged that the BJP offered ₹50 crore to Congress MLAs as a bribe to switch sides. He firmly denied the possibility of his government falling, stating, “Not possible. Our MLAs will not leave. Not a single MLA will leave our party,” underscoring his confidence that the Congress-led government will complete its full term despite challenges.

Siddaramaiah’s strong assertions come at a time when political tensions are high in Karnataka, with the BJP claiming that the Congress government could collapse if it performs poorly in the upcoming polls. This statement follows the historical context where, after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress-JD(S) alliance government fell, leading to BJP assuming power in the state.

Looking ahead, the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 are scheduled to commence in seven phases starting April 19, with the final count on June 4. These elections are crucial for the Congress to retain its foothold in Karnataka, particularly after the disappointing results in the 2019 polls where the BJP secured a record 25 seats out of 28. The political landscape in Karnataka remains charged as parties gear up for another electoral battle.
