Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders have slammed Karnataka Chief Minister (CM) Kumaraswamy, for his frequent 'Congress is my Master,' remarks. Several Union BJP leaders slammed Kumaraswamy for making such remarks, which are totally undemocratic, they said. He being the CM of the state has to be assertive in his position. But because he has no mandate, he is unable to to that, they observed. Kumaraswamy, who has been meeting Congress leaders in the Centre recently, said that he is at the mercy of Congress. However, state Congress leaders said that there is equal responsibility.
