Matu 13

The Karnataka Alliance of the BJP and JD(S) in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls might be dicey. Reports suggest that the BJP might give only two seats to the JD(S) candidate as opposed to the JD(S) expectations of at least three to four seats. The regional party’s state President H D Kumaraswamy expressed that his party has the ability to influence at least 18 Lok Sabha Seats and it is in BJP’s favor to keep up with the seat-sharing agreement.

Further stating that JD(S) leaders have discussed and asked him to let BJP leaders know about his party’s strength in 18 Lok Sabha constituencies, Kumaraswamy said, “In several constituencies, if we transfer our strength, BJP has a plus point. Karnataka’s politics is different from politics in the rest of the country. The political picture in Karnataka is different; bring it to their notice is what they have told me.” According to some of his party leaders, the BJP-JD(S) alliance is not beneficial to the JD(S) in a big way, he said. “In 18 Lok Sabha segments, if the JD(S) votes swing in favor of BJP candidates, it will benefit BJP — our efforts will benefit BJP.” “They want me to bring it to the notice of the BJP high command that — let them (BJP) use it (JDS strength) properly; if not and if there are negative consequences, they will be responsible. We will not be responsible,” he added.


A meeting of JD(S) core committee members, observers to all the Lok Sabha constituencies, district presidents, and sitting and former MLAs was held on Monday in the presence of the party’s national President H D Deve Gowda and Kumaraswamy.“I will not speak until there is an official announcement. I have not asked for six or seven seats. Since the day discussions began between both of us, we have asked for three to four seats,” Kumaraswamy said in response to a question about reports that the BJP may allot just two seats to the JD(S).

Pointing out that in the north Karnataka region, JD(S) is ahead of the BJP in two to three assembly constituencies in Bijapur (Vijayapura), and also in Kalaburagi, Kumaraswamy said, “In such places, there should be a discussion with BJP high command on how to use our leaders. We should be treated respectfully; we discussed in the meeting what will be the consequences if we are neglected.” By discussing all this with the BJP high command, it has been decided to frame programs aimed at taking everyone together cordially and working unitedly, Kumaraswamy said.
