Amid infighting between the Congress and JDS in the state of Karnataka, the Congress party in the state has dissolved the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee. The AICC has decided to dissolve the present committee of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee while they informed in a press note that the president and working president remain unchanged.

Here's the press note released by Congress leader KC Venugopal:

This comes a day after HD Kumaraswamy had leveled charges against the BJP accusing them of trying to topple the government and engaging in poaching by way of bribing party members. Soon after, former CM Siddaramaiah agreed that BJP indeed was 'desperately' trying to topple the government.

No reasons further have further been given for the dissolution of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee.

However, Kumaraswamy On June 18 had also claimed: " I cannot tell what problems I am facing openly. I am the Chief Minister now but I cannot share the pain that I face every day with you. If I do then they will question me as to how will I be able to solve the problems faced by people. On one hand, I have ensured this government functions peacefully and on the other, I'll have to keep assuring our bureaucrats that this government is safe. I have all these responsibilities," he said.

Contradicting HD Kumaraswamy's charges, Siddharamaih had said, "There is absolutely no threat to the coalition government, we will survive and function to deliver the promises we have made to the people of Karnataka"

The Congress-JDS had faced a setback during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections when  BJP had swept 25 parliamentary constituencies out of a total of 28, leaving Congress to one seat. The Congress and JD(S) coalition, which won 117 seats combined, is currently in power in the Karnataka State Assembly managing a slim margin over the BJP's 104 seats.
