JD(S)-Congress govt faces multiple challenges in Karnataka 20.5.2018 DNA: India
From arch rival to coalition partners, the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) face multiple challenges once they form a coalition government in Karnataka. The foes-turned-friends will have to keep their vote banks — including the rival Lingayat, Vokkalinga communities, and Dalits and Muslims — in good humour even while pursuing the coalition dharma. The crucial test will be in striking a seat sharing deal for the 28 Lok Sabha seats in 2019 general elections. This will be quite crucial as JD(S) has quietly made inroads into the strongholds of Congress in the recently concluded assembly election and caused it maximum damage. About 40 per cent polled Muslim and Dalit votes went to the JD(S) though the two communities traditionally supported the Congress. On top of it, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had dubbed JD(S) as BJP's B team, which was rebutted strongly by HD Deve Gowda and his son HD Kumaraswamy.

Cong questions Goa CM's 'silence' on people's issues in video 14.5.2018 General News
The Goa Congress today questioned the "silence" of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on issues like mining ban and sharing of the Mahadeyi river water in his video message played at the meeting of BJP workers addressed by party chief Amit Shah here yesterday. In the message, Parrikar (62), currently undergoing treatment in the USA for a pancreatic ailment, said he would return to his home state in the "next few weeks". He also spoke about the Karnataka elections. "It is surprising that the chief minister had no time to mention the current issues like the mining ban, which are affecting the livelihood of the common people," Congress' Goa spokesman Siddhanath Buyao said while addressing a press conference here. He said Parrikar had to release the message due to the pressure mounted by the Congress which has demanded a "full time" CM to run the state.
