Meanwhile Karnataka Deputy CM said,'How can he say that? He must be definitely happy, CM has to be always happy, if he's happy we'll all be happy.''
Sensing an opportunity to capitalise on the alleged rift, BJP social media in-charge Amit Malviya said Kumaraswamy was unlikely to give up the CM's chair despite being "humiliated" by the Congress.
Kumaraswamy had openly stated earlier that he is at mercy of the Congress party for giving him a chance to be the CM of Karnataka.
The Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) forged a post-poll alliance to form the government in Karnataka. Janata Dal (Secular) Karnataka chief HD Kumaraswamy took oath as the chief minister on May 23.
