By the time a budget was put forth by a state with literally no funds in its kitty, Karnataka was hit by Corona. A few analysts believe that Corona outbreak in the state secured the position of the government and the CM. This was because many people had by then understood the reason for the poor functioning of the state government in its first phase. This poor functioning was due to the infighting within BJP and because the party leaders at Delhi had taken to non-cooperation with state BJP unit. The political situation eased a bit when notions that Karnataka tackled Corona outbreak well in its early days started to spread. At least temporarily, the infighting within BJP was addressed by the Delhi BJP leaders at the time of the Rajya Sabha elections.
