“Leader of a party having 37 seats becoming the chief minister of Karnataka is a mockery. It is for the first time in 70 years that the state has come to a situation where we feel there is no government. Even after a year of forming the government, they have done nothing. The coalition government may collapse due to their internal clashes. It may happen after May 23. This government won’t last long,” he added.
