'Siddaramaiah's "Arrogant Statements" Will Lead To His Loss'

JD(S) MLC Ramesh Babu said that the party was expecting around 50 seats


Janata Dal (S) MLC Saravana, who was among the first leaders to visit party supremo and former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda at his residence on Tuesday morning, told reporters that chief minister Siddaramaiah's "arrogant statements" against his "guru and mentor" was the reason why he (Siddaramaiah) was trailing in the constituencies where he is contesting.

JD(S) MLC Ramesh Babu said that the party was expecting around 50 seats.

"As per the current trends, it may be a hung assembly. Mr. Deve Gowda and Mr. Kumaraswamy, in consultation with the party's core committee, will discuss the future course of action. We have communicated to all our candidates to come to Bengaluru immediately. We want to see good governance," he said and added that so far, no leaders from other parties had approached the JD(S).

JD(S) leaders are a little disappointed about the party’s performance. They said they were expecting to win 60 seats. They said that while the party’s performance in Tumakuru was disappointing, the party candidates have done well in the Old Mysuru region. The party has also improved its performance in Hyderabad Karnataka.
