Hassan: Former Chief Minister H. D. Kumaraswamy has expressed confidence that the JD (S) will open its accounts in all the places except Dakshina Kannada and Udupi Districts this time as it has received good support from the people during the ‘Pancharatna Rath Yatra’.
Speaking to mediapersons at Ragimuddanahalli Village in Holenarasipura Taluk of the District, he said that Pancharatna Ratha Yatra is being organised in the District. As expected by all, the party will get a good position and for the first time, I am seeing the support of the people irrespective of caste wherever I go,” he said.
“The two National parties say JD (S) will bag only two to three Districts but I am confident of JD (S) opening its account in other Districts as well. Both the Congress and the BJP are preparing to create confusion among the public. Therefore, arrangements have been made to increase the party’s tally through fake surveys and the public will not be disturbed by this and will support the JD (S),” he said.
Reacting to the release of JD (S ) list, he said, “We will sit down soon and take a decision to finalise the list of 100 more Constituencies. The final curtain has to be drawn in another week or 10 days. Deve Gowda is capable of announcing the candidate in all good relations without getting upset with anyone,” he said.
