Published On: September 22, 2023 - Escalating political tensions in Karnataka are shaking the foundations of the government. Cooperation Minister K N Rajanna's bold proposal for the appointment of three Deputy Chief Ministers, representing different communities, has sparked controversy and intrigue. He argues that this move is crucial to secure the diverse votes needed for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Meanwhile, D K Suresh, the younger brother of influential political figure DKS, has refrained from dismissing Rajanna's ideas outright. Rajanna, undeterred, insists that this proposal is motivated by a desire for the state's success in 2024, emphasizing its non-partisan nature. Are the camps working overtime to create fissures between the CM and his deputy?
