New Delhi, May 28: JD-S leader and Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy on Monday said his ruling ally the Congress had numbers that made its voice stronger in the coalition government.
“What mercy? They supported my party. According to their direction, I have to work. That is my responsibility,” the Chief Minister told media on Monday.
He was replying to a question related to his Sunday remarks that said he was at the “mercy” of the Congress and not the 6.5 crore people of Karnataka because his government had not received the full mandate which his party had sought in the May 12 elections.
Kumaraswamy is in the national capital to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other union ministers to seek financial assistance for farm loan waiver — a “priority” for his government.
