Dubbing the current political situation in Karnataka as 'ludicrous,' Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Ananth Kumar said the new JDS-Congress coalition government was direction less and only temporary.
Speaking to reporters here, he said the newgovernment was direction less with the Chief Minister naming 25 ministers without any portfolios.
"Even though the people had given the highest number of seatsto the BJP in the assembly elections, JD(S) and Congress made a back door entry to power. This (government) is only temporary,"he said.
He pointed out that already there was rebellion and dissatisfaction among leaders and cadre of JD(S) andCongress.
"The workers are not happy with the coalition of the two parties, which were at loggerheads before the elections. Therefore the coalition will be a short-lived one,"Kumarsaid.
