Kar­nataka: Lone BSP Min­is­ter’s exit may hurt Congress

The Hindu Business Line - - NEWS - ANIL URS

The res­ig­na­tion of lone Bahu­jan Sa­maj party (BSP) MLA and Kar­nataka Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter, N Ma­hesh, is seen as a set­back for the State Congress while his party’s al­liance with the JD(S) re­mains in­tact. Sources in the party said the BSP which de­cided not to en­ter into al­liance with the Congress for the forth­com­ing State elec­tions in North In­dia, had in­structed Ma­hesh to step out of the coali­tion gov­ern­ment in Kar­nataka. A se­nior BSP party func­tionary, who re­fused to be iden­ti­fied, said “N Ma­hesh was asked to quit af­ter the BSP broke away from the Congress in North In­dia.”
