After the break-up of the Janata Dal (Secular)-Congress alliance, things don't seem to be going Siddaramaiah's way. He expected that he would take control of the Congress Party and prepare it for the upcoming by-polls.
More than fighting the BJP and the JDS, Siddharamaiah seems to embroil in battling his rivals within the party. He was the chairperson of the coordination committee of the alliance during the Kumaraswamy regime. He has believed that he will continue as the CLP leader in the assembly but, there is opposition within the Congress to him.
Voting is being done to select the new CLP leader was the demand as several senior leaders of the Congress are questioning his leadership. For the post of the leader of the Opposition, Siddaramaiah opposed by BK Hariprasad, Muniyappa and others.
For the fall of the Kumaraswamy government, party members blamed Siddaramaiah's ambitions. Former MP and JDU national president HD Deve Gowda was also blaming him. For the plight of the party's to-go-man DK Sivakumara also held responsible.
