On "The Countdown", Prannoy Roy and Maya Sharma speak with Congress's DK Shivakumar on what the Lok Sabha election 2019 holds for his party. Will the Congress-JD(S) alliance in Karnataka pull off a win this time as well? The infighting between the parties has been a talking point in the recent past. "I am sure we will have better results with this great alliance," the Congress leader said. On whether this is a "happy coalition" considering Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy airing concerns over the difficulties of running the Karnataka government, Mr Shivakumar said, "Kumaraswamy is a very emotional man. But he's quite lucky also... We all are working together for the state. Sometimes, to gain something you have to lose something."
