Deve Gowda gets zero, must quit

December 17, 2019

By T.J.S. George When will Sri H.D.  Deve Gowda realise that people are fed up with his politics?  His own followers are fed up. Many have quit and joined the BJP, including the President of the JD(S) Karnataka unit, A.H. Vishwanath.  In last week’s by-elections, 15 seats were at stake. The BJP got 12 and…
