Bangalore, Jan 15: Amidst all the criticism of dynasty politics, grandson of former prime minister of India and JD(S) supremo Deve Gowda, and son of former CM of Karnatka H D Kumaraswamy, Nikhil Gowda is set to make a grand entry into politics very soon. Sources close to JD(S) have confirmed to daijiworld that the stage is already set to welcome 23-year-old Nikhil Gowda, who was in the news for wrong reasons a couple of years back.

JD(S) will welcome the young leader into its folds by handing over the post of JD(S) youth wing general secretary to Nikhil by the end of this month. The Gowda family, which strongly believes in astrology is reportedly waiting for the right day to take him into the party officially.

Currently pursuing his MBA, Nikhil has already started his 'training' in politics, going around with his grandfather Deve Gowda, the 'chanakya' of Indian politics. He meets people who come to greet Deve Gowda, attends meetings with him, and also with those from his father Kumaraswamy and mother Anitha Kumaraswamy's constituency.

It is said that many young guns in JD(S) are awaiting Nikhil Gowda's arrival to create some charm among the young minds.

According to sources, Deve Gowda is interested in transfering responsibility of Ramanagara constituency to Nikhil.

If all goes well, Nikhil could well be an MLA candidate for Ramanagar constituency in the coming assembly election in mid 2013.
