A video of an unidentified woman lashing out against HD Kumaraswamy and JD(S) for joining hands with Congress to form the government has been going viral. She further states that the CM post gained by Kumaraswamy is alms given to him by Congress. In the video, the woman expresses her dissatisfaction towards Congress' rule during which DK Ravi and DySP Ganpathi died under mysterious circumstances. The woman disliked HD Kumaraswamy joining hands with Siddaramaiah because the latter had earlier made fun of the former during election rallies. She was optimistic of a BJP-JD(S) alliance, since that gave her hopes of seeing solutions for the Cauvery and Mahadayi water disputes.
