RSS, BJP planning to make Pralhad Joshi as Karnataka CM: HD Kumaraswamy

JD (S) leader and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy, has courted a row by saying that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is trying to impose Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, as the next chief minister of the state if the party wins the assembly elections which is scheduled to be held this year.

“RSS is contemplating that Prahalad Joshi should be made the next CM of Karnataka after the elections. Pralhad Joshi is not from the Brahmin community that belongs to Dakshin Karnataka, but He (Joshi) belongs to the Brahmin community which split the Sringeri Mutt,” Kumaraswamy said here on Sunday.

Prahlad Joshi is currently Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Coal and Mines and represents the Dharwad Lok Sabha segment.

He made this statement in response to Joshi taking a swipe at the JD(S)’ Pancharatna Yatre, saying that a Navagraha Yatre should have been undertaken instead.

Kumaraswamy said he even had the list of deputy CM probables.

“A meeting of RSS leaders was held in Delhi where the party decided the next CM and Joshi will be the next Chief Minister. 8 names for deputy CMs have also been picked up by the party,” HDK said.

He said the voters should not fall prey to the machinations of RSS and false promises of the BJP.

The BJP was able to breach the JDS stronghold only in 2019 when the BJP was successfully able to poach the Congress JDS MLAs and topple the HD Kumaraswamy-led government.
