Bidar: The Assembly elections in the State will take place by December of this year instead of April 2023, said former Chief Minister and JD (S) leader HD Kumaraswamy’s on Saturday July 30. He said that it was unlikely for Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai to complete his tenure.
Speaking to mediapersons here HDK said the Janata Dal (Secular) had already begun selecting its candidates in anticipation for early elections. This programme will focus on education, health, housing, farmers’ welfare and providing employment to women and youth besides social security schemes. The party has already decided which “A” category Assembly districts would hold the first round of the programme.
He urged people to support the JD (S) party so that its government may continue for the full five years. There was no need to go to the Center because the State’s resources were enough for wealth creation. “He would try to find a permanent solution to the farmers’ loan burden even though waiving their loans was not a long-term solution,” Kumaraswamy added.
Responding to the State Government’s decision to hand over the Praveen Nettaru murder case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), he said that there were good police officers in the State. The State government tried to escape its responsibility by turning the case over to the NIA.
