“Politics is the art of the possible,” is a remark attributed to the Iron Chancellor, Otto Von Bismarck.
As the state government teeters on the edge, opposition JD(S) and Congress have been attempting to cobble up a coalition that could take over the reins of governance.
Despite a bitter experience of coalition in the past, the two parties now seem set to negotiate anew. However, leaders of both parties remained tight-lipped, unwilling to divulge details.
Former chief minister HD Kumaraswamy is believed to have played a significant role in convincing a section of the BJP MLAs to rebel against the party. Asked of his future plans, he dodged a question about whether his party would align with the Congress.
Pressed to answer questions about whether the state could see a coalition government, Kumaraswamy said, “Let’s not talk about hypothetical situations.
It’s hard to anticipate at this point what the options would be.” However, there is no doubt that with only 28 MLAs in the 224-member house, the JD(S) would be in no position to form a government of its own. Counselling patience, the JD(S) state president said, “Wait and see, there is surprise in store for the people of the state. The corrupt BJP government will soon come to an end.”
