Why is Congress so very desperate?

It is very clear that the people of Karnataka have rejected the Congress party. The situation is so very critical that the Ex-chief minister, Siddharamiah was humiliated at Chamundeshwari as he lost by 17,000 votes to Devegowda from JDS. He had to face a stiff fight in Badami constituency and managed to win by 3000 votes margin against Sri Ramulu.

These developments pushed Congress into defense and they were ready to accept any offer that was put on the table by JDS. The Congress party openly stated that they will be supporting JDS party and Kumaraswamy as the chief minister. This shows the utter desperation of the age-old party to make sure that their arch-rivals BJP does not form the government in Karnataka.

Congress was in no position to acknowledge the fact that they are the second largest party and bowed down to a party that had just 38 MLA seats. With that being said, there is still no clarity about which party will be forming the government as the number game is getting trickier with every passing day.
