Democracy and Honesty Lost’: Rahul Gandhi Says ‘Vested Interests’ Behind Congress-JD(S) Defeat

After the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition government in Karnataka collapsed on Tuesday, former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi likened the development to “a defeat of democracy and honesty” and said that the “greed” of the BJP had prevailed.

“From its first day, the Congress-JDS alliance in Karnataka was a target for vested interests, both within and outside, who saw the alliance as a threat and an obstacle in their path to power.
Their greed won today. Democracy, honesty & the people of Karnataka lost,” Gandhi said in a tweet.
