Deve Gowda sees conspiracy to defeat Nikhil Kumaraswamy

April 5, 2019

K.R. Pet: Days after the top brass of the coalition partners, JD(S) and Congress, chanted unity mantra loudly in the State Capital, JD(S) supremo and former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda has said that some of the leaders of the grand-old- party have gone ‘too far’ with their agenda to defeat his grandson Nikhil Kumaraswamy in Mandya Lok Sabha seat.

Addressing a poll rally at K.R. Pet yesterday, Deve Gowda maintained that some leaders have conspired to defeat Nikhil to damage the reputation of Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy. A visit by former CM Siddharamaiah to Mandya would not be of any benefit, he added.

Stating that Congress leaders should have shown greater interest in campaigning, he appealed to the youths not to be swayed by glamour and look at who actually worked for their welfare.

Deve Gowda struck an emotional chord, when he said that the fate of Nikhil rests with the voters of Mandya. The JD(S) supremo later addressed a rally at Srirangapatna, where he appealed to the voters to vote for coalition candidate Nikhil Kumaraswamy. Srirangapatna JD(S) MLA Ravindra Srikantaiah and other  leaders were present.

    Just like HDD said that siddaramiah was not defeated by JDS or congress but by people….same will be the fate of nikhil in mandya . Why should anyone blame Congress or JDS?
    Win and defeat is by the voters not by parties…..

  2. Has H D Kumaraswamy forgotten his duties, wonders Suresh Kumar.He expressed confidence people will teach a bitter lesson for the HDD family which is stretching it’s unabashed family politics to the third generation.
    Former minister and senior BJP leader S Suresh Kumar on Thursday wondered whether Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy had forgotten his duties and responsibilities, and restricted his activities to that of a leader of the party in Mandya in order to work for the success of his son Nikhil Kumaraswamy in parliamentary polls.
    He said “describing themselves as secular, they are resorting only to caste based politics. It does not augur well for politics in general if leaders of JD (S) speak ill of a women candidate like Mrs Sumalatha Ambareesh or against those from filmdom. They should learn to respect everyone.”
