K’taka Cong govt’s future is dependent on LS poll results: Kumaraswamy

Raising doubts about the longevity of the Siddaramaiah-led new Congress government in Karnataka, JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy on Thursday said its future is dependent on the results of the 2024 Parliament elections.

The former Chief Minister said his statement is only based on his analysis of political situation in the state and should not be misinterpreted as though he was up to something by joining hands with someone.

“I don’t know whether the (next Assembly) election will happen after five years, what all may happen I don’t know, let’s see. The future of this government is dependent on the results of the upcoming Parliament elections, I know it. I’m not speaking by hiding things, nor am I making any astrological predictions,” Kumaraswamy said.
