Attack on Trinamool MP Abhishek Banerjee's convoy led to the arrest of four people

Insiders claim that the Karnataka Congress, which easily won the May 10 Assembly elections, is now split over the process of expanding the cabinet.
Even while no one has dared to openly express their resentment, Congress insiders acknowledged that there is simmering resentment among senior party leaders who were passed up for cabinet roles.
Since the party did not offer him a post in the administration, BK Hariprasad, a prominent politician and fervent admirer of the Sonia Gandhi family, is considering quitting from his position as MLC and leader of the opposition in the council. He was shocked to hear the news, according to individuals close to him.
After declining to accept the job of Assembly Speaker, the party seems to have removed senior Congress lawmaker RV Deshpande.
The senior leader's frenzied lobbying in New Delhi, according to the source, proved unsuccessful. Deshpande, a shrewd politician, is also accused by the state unit of abandoning the party when things became tough.
Shivalinge Gowda, who joined the Congress after quitting the opposition to former Prime Minister HD, The Deve Gowda family from JD(S) is disgruntled for the same reason. “I am dejected. At their meeting, he said Siddaramaiah, “I won't say anything now.
Senior politicians TB Jayachandra, who leads the Vokkaliga faction, and Vinay Kulkarni, who won from Dharwad Rural without contesting in the district, are also unhappy. The blue-eyed son of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Vinay Kulkarni, is accused of killing a BJP worker.
Additionally, cabinet slots were not given to BJP defectors Jagadish Shettar and Laxman Savadi. Savadi has been promised a future distribution of cabinet seats, while Jagadish Shettar has been promised an MLC seat and his eventual nomination to the government.
Respected politician Rudrappa Lamani was also excluded from the government. Up until last night, Rudrappa Lamani, the leader of our banjara community, had his name on the list; however, today we saw that it was absent. Since we gave Congress 75% of the vote in the election and we think our community should have at least one leader, we will protest if our leader is not given the ministerial post, according to his supporters.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah questioned the media on Saturday over this development and inquired as to if any of the leaders had explicitly voiced their opposition to the expansion of the cabinet. He said that no such development was taking place.
