Karnataka Crisis: Why the Congress and JD(S) coalition might collapse

The Congress-JD(S) coalition in Karnataka has slipped to the brink of a collapse with 10 Congress and three JD(S) MLAs expressing intent to resign. If their resignations are accepted by the Speaker, the coalition will lose majority in the state assembly as its strength will come down to 104 against the BJP’s 105. On today’s episode we’re diving into the Karnataka crisis with three questions- Was this crisis a long time coming? What are Congress and JD(S) ministers doing to salvage the situation and bring the coalition back from the brink of collapse? And last, what are the odds stacked up against BJP, which will attempt to form the government if the coalition loses majority? Our Congress correspondent Manoj CG joins us to explain.
