JDS-Congress alliance in Karnataka fought over lucrative portfolios and finally sorted it out. But according to reports the fight is still on between Kumaraswamy and Revanna for cash-rich portfolios.
In Karnataka Congress and JDS have not only ended their fight over cabinet portfolios, but have also decided to fight 2019 elections together.
Congress supported JDS to form govt in Karnataka calling it an effort to save democracy. Now the Kumaraswamy-led JDS govt is in limbo as the new CM has no cabinet to begin the work. And they are waiting for Rahul Gandhi to return from abroad to sort out ministry allocation issues.

The unfolding of the political ‘natak’ in Karnataka even after the results are out, must have saddened the voters of Karnataka. Some of the developments in the state are beyond voters’ mandate!
When BJP fell short of a simple majority, something unexpected happened. Congress volunteered to support JD(S) to form govt and make Kumaraswamy, the next Chief Minister of Karnataka.
