John F. Kennedy said: "Success has many fathers. Defeat is an orphan." On May 23, 2018 H.D. Kumaraswamy, with the support of the Congress was a successful leader and was sworn as the Chief Minister of Karnataka. To witness his swearing-in, Vidhana Soudha was flooded with a conglomeration of leaders from across the country of all the ginger groups, opposed to NDA and BJP. It included Rahul, Naidu, Mamata, KCR, etc.
On their own admission, by the leaders of the Opposition, Karnataka exercise was the beginning of a national coalition against the NDA and the BJP. It was the foundation on which the superstructure was expected to be constructed. The foundation is not only shaky,but started crumbling. Has Kumaraswamy become an 'orphan?'
