Mysuru, Mar 25: Congress-JD(S) coalition seems to be bickering in seat sharing and JDS, unable to find a ‘suitable’ candidate, returns the Bangalore North Lok Sabha seat to the Congress.
Speaking to newsmen at Chamundi Hills on Monday, Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy said that his party has returned Bangalore North Lok Sabha seat to Congress.
However, he did not give the reason or any further details. Thanking JDS for its gesture, AICC General Secretary and Karnataka in-charge K C Venugopal in his tweeter said that " thankful to H D Deve Gowda ji and the JD(S) for their kind gesture of giving back the Bengaluru North Lok Sabha seat to the Congress. Together, let us reclaim democracy,”
The alliance has been facing several roadblocks, with the JD(S) now realising it has no candidates to put up from its share of eight seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The JD(S) had initially demanded 12 of the 28 Lok Sabha. Finally it come down to eight and now settled for seven seats. UNI
