The President of the JD(S) unit in Karnataka, C M Ibrahim, is not happy about forming an alliance with the BJP for the upcoming elections. He thinks his party, JD(S), should be ‘secular,’ meaning not favoring any particular religion. He said that in Karnataka, he is the boss, not the national president, and he will decide who to ally with, except the BJP.
Ibrahim Call for Party Unity
Ibrahim even invited some important people who left the party to come back. He thinks they can make the party stronger. He said he’s glad that people from different parts of the state are supporting his faction of the party.
Internal Rifts and Decision-making Challenges
Initially, JD(S) had planned to join hands with the BJP for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. But Ibrahim doesn’t want this alliance. He believes his party should talk to other groups in Karnataka and decide who to ally with, except the BJP.
Ibrahim’s Opposition to BJP Alliance
In short, there’s a disagreement within JD(S) about forming an alliance with the BJP. Ibrahim leader in Karnataka, wants to make decisions locally and doesn’t want to ally with BJP, while the national leaders had different plan. They are having some trouble deciding what to do for the upcoming elections.
