New Delhi: Hours after former Karnataka Chief Minister and JD(S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy announced the alliance between the BJP and the JD(S) in the national capital on Friday, the Congress hit back by saying that the grand old party’s stand throughout the Karnataka election campaign has been officially vindicated today that the JD(S) is the B team of the saffron party.
In a post on X, Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said, “What the Congress had repeatedly said throughout the Karnataka election campaign has been officially vindicated today. The B team of the BJP in the state — JD(S) — has officially become part of the NDA, that too a day following the most nakedly communal attack by a BJP MP on a former senior JD(S) leader in the Lok Sabha.”
The remarks from the Congress leader came after Kumaraswamy, after meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President J.P. Nadda in the national capital, officially announced the alliance between JD(S) and the NDA led by the BJP.
