The weeping Chief MinisterOnly two months ago, he was made Chief Minister with much fanfare. The second largest party abdicated the throne in favour of the third largest part and his father made him the Chief Minister. But what happened within two months. What has happened that the Chief Minister has started weeping and crying in public?
I am talking about HD Kumaraswamy, the Chief Minister of Karnataka. On the day before yesterday (On Saturday), he went to a function organized by his party JD(S) to felicitate him. In that meeting, in presence of his party MLAs and important supporters. Kumaraswamy started weeping.
He stated: ""You are standing with bouquets to wish me, as one of your brothers has become the chief minister, and you all are happy, but I'm not. I know the pain of running a coalition government. I became like Lord Vishkanth and swallowed the pain of this government, The chief minister's post is not a bed of roses, it's a bed of thorns".
I am feeling very sympathetic to the Chief Minister of Karnataka. He should now abdicate the bed of thorns and call for fresh election.
