Janata Dal-Secular or JD(S) Chief Ministerial Candidate HD Kumaraswamy has accused today the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of offering cabinet posts and Rs 100 crore to some Janata Dal (Secular) MLAs. He added that he has gotten an offer from the BJP, but will not betray his father Deve Gowda again. HD Kumaraswamy, who was chosen as legislative party leader in a meeting of the JD(S) MLAs in Bengaluru revealed this update Just a short while ago, BS Yeddyurappa submitted the papers of his election as BJP Legislature Party leader to Governor Vajubhai Vala and said the Governor has promised to take “appropriate decision”. The second “table-topper” Congress(78 Seats) is also holding a meeting with its MLAs and has prepared plans to “secure” their newly elected lawmakers at resorts.
During the interview, Kumaraswamy said,” I would like to thank all the voters of Karnataka, JD(S), and BSP workers for the work they have put into the campaign. This is not a result that has brought joy to anyone. But I am sure that this is not a vote for the development of Karnataka. However, it’s not the voters who should be blamed, but there have been several attempts made to derail the manner in which JD(S) functions and distract JD(S) from coming to power, and this was perpetrated by nefarious elements and as a result of which we have a broken mandate.
Amid allegations of horse-trading, Congress MLA TD Rajegowda says, “They (BJP) keep on calling, but we don’t bother about it. I have clearly asked them not to call me. I am a committed Congress-person. BJP has been doing this from a long time; This is their job.”
Congress, who have made an alliance with JD(S) just after they didn’t get the full majority, likely to move Supreme Court if Congress-JDS combine not invited by Governor. Congress Abhishek Manu Singhvi will lead a delegation of leaders and move Supreme Court if the Governor does not invite the JD(S)-Congress combine to stake claim to form the government in Karnataka.
