Congress has achieved historic success in the Karnataka assembly elections in 2023. Congress workers are celebrating this victory not only in Karnataka but all over the country, while Congress leaders are seen doing a tug-of-war for the CM race in Karnataka. Due to this, a poster war started in the Congress on Sunday when the supporters of state chief DK Shivakumar and outgoing leader of opposition Siddaramaiah put up posters in the capital demanding the appointment of a leader of their choice as the chief minister.
After winning the assembly elections in Karnataka, the Congress top leadership is brainstorming on the name of the next chief minister. There has been talk of electing the new Chief Minister of Karnataka in the Legislature Party meeting itself, but posters have already been put up at Siddaramaiah's residence confirming his announcement to become the Chief Minister. In the poster, he has been congratulated for becoming the CM for the second time.
