    Bengaluru - After the resignation of influential Dalit
    leader V Srinivas Prasad from the ruling Congress in
    Karnataka, many hurt leaders in the party are looking at
    greener pastures ahead of 2018 Assembly poll, which is
    crucial to the party led by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
    The spat between Siddaramaiah and his close confidant CM
    Ibrahim, a leader migrated from JD(S) along with the
    Chief Minister to the Congress shows all the sign of
    leaders in search of parties and safe constituencies for
    the next Assembly elections.

    CM Ibrahim who is the Deputy Chairman of the State
    Planning Commission has criticised the State Government
    for its failure in many fronts. He questioned
    Siddaramaiah and said, "Siddaramaiah is not what he was
    in the past." He further said, " We are good friends. But
    what has the State got? What progress has the State
    achieved?" His comments have created ripples in the
    Congress and Siddaramaiah said in Mysuru " it was not
    possible to satisfy discontented people". He said, "I
    cannot help people who are always unhappy."

    It is an open secret in the party that many leaders are
    unhappy with Siddaramaiah and his style of functioning.
    After the reshuffle of his Ministry, Siddaramaiah has
    dropped many Ministers who are now disgruntled and
    waiting for an opportunity to hop on to another party.
