The Karnataka elections drove KCR into a typical Hamletian dilemma of to be or not to be . The JD(S) leader, HD Kumara Swamy invited a host of non BJP leaders including his ally Congress for the swearing in ceremony. The Congress and several parties opposed to BJP find it as an opportunity to galvanise the anti Modi forces in the run up to 2019 general elections.
Nothing happens in politics without any reason. Suddenly, the Telangana chief minister ordered expediting of the case related to vote for note in which Andhra Pradesh chief minister , N Chandrababu Naidu faces allegations.
The case has been pending for long without any significant progress. In fact, it is not such a complex case that demands such a long investigation.
BJP countered Congress' revitalised campaign in Gujarat led by a transformed Rahul Gandhi by rousing the 'Gujarati Asmitha' epitomised through Modi-Shah duo who personally led the party's campaign.
The Karnataka chief minister seeks to inflict the 'Kannadiga Asmitha' damage on Modi-led BJP's campaign avenging what Congress lost in Gujarat campaign trail.
