New Delhi, Sep 28 (UNI) The Congress party seems not inclined to muddle in Karnataka where deepening political crisis is predicted over the power sharing issue between the Janata Dal (Secular) and the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The thinking in the Congress, which shared power with the JD(S) in Karnataka 20 months ago, was not to extend support to the H D Kumaraswamy government in the event of the present ruling JD(S)-BJP coalition collapsing.

''We want the government to go in the event of a crisis developing within the present ruling coalition,'' a senior Congress leader said, while pointing out that ''we will not marry the JD (S).'' He said the assessment of the Congress party was that it had good chances in any election in Karnataka.

Earlier, AICC Spokesman Abishek Manu Singhvi told newspersons that there was no question of Congress taking any position on Karnataka.

Asked what was the "gameplan" of Congress with regard to Karnataka, he asked ''how can we have a gameplan even before the game begins ?'' Referring to reports that a Cabinet minister had accused Chief Minister Kumaraswamy of murder, Dr Singhvi said this was a clear proof of the level of governance in Karnataka.

''This is unheard of in the Constitutional history of india,'' he said, and added that the "only binding factor among the two bed fellows is mad passion for power.'' UNI
