H D Kumaraswamy says BJP offering around Rs 25-30 crore to woo their MLAs


Bengaluru, Nov 7 (Agencies) : JD(S) leader and Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday congratulated both the Congress and JD(S) leaders and party workers in the state and at the Centre for their hard work and dedication for ensuring historic victory in the Karnataka by-election 2018.

Kumaraswamy said the BJP calls the Congress-JD(S) coalition in Karnataka ‘Apavitra Maitri’, but today that contention has been nullified. He also alleged that the BJP is offering around Rs 25-30 Crore to some Congress and JD(S) MLAs but they will never be able to poach them.

 

The Congress-JD(S) alliance won 4 out of 5 seats – Bellary, Mandya, Ramanagaram and Jamkhandi – in the Karnataka by-election 2018 while the BJP won Shimoga Lok Sabha seat on Tuesday. JD(S)’ LR Shivaramegowda won Mandya parliamentary seat with a margin of 32,4943 votes while the party’s Anitha Kumaraswamy won Ramanagaram assembly seat with a margin of 10,9137 votes and Congress’s AS Nyamagouda won Jamkhandi assembly seat by a margin of 39,480 votes. According to latest reports, Congress’ VS Ugruppa won Bellary parliamentary seat with a margin of 2,43, 161 votes.

Terming the recent win in the Karnataka by-election 2018 as the first step, Kumaraswamy asked the JD(S) workers to work in tandem with the Congress to ensure victory in the 28 Lok Sabha seats in the state. The Karnataka chief minister also said the win in 28 Lok Sabha seats is neither an empty boast nor arrogance since the people of Karnataka have reposed their faith in the Congress-JD(S) coalition and voted for it. Speaking on the celebration of Tipu Jayanti, Kumaraswamy said he had never asked people to celebrate or not to celebrate Tipu Jayanti, but all he said was there are many communities in the country, people want to celebrate jayantis (birthdays) of their leaders and if the (BJP) don’t like to be part of the celebrations, there is no need to participate in it.

Karnataka Congress chief Dinesh Gundu Rao said the people have rejected BJP and it is also a rejection of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government. Karnataka by-election results will send a message to the entire country that the time for change has come, said Rao, as Congress-JD(S) alliance, leads on 4 out of 5 seats in the state.

On being questioned, if the Karnataka by-election results 2018 will give a message to the whole nation before 2019 election, Karnataka minister DK Shivakumar said that in any democratic result or election process, people’s mandate is very important and it’s the direction to the people of this country. “I think as far as southern India is concerned, you can’t make Ram Mandir and all those issues a political plank. People are looking at what they’re going to get, what benefit they’re going to get in the social and economic sector, and transparency,” Shivakumar added.

    We used to have a story called Agasa ( washer man ) yelling Crocodile has come Crocodile has come ( ಮೊಸಳೆ ಬಂತು )
    When town people came in there was no Crocodile .
    Same way HDK has been telling MLAs are bribed by BJP
    Operation Kamala
    Nothing has happened
    One fine day when MLAS leave JDS then no one will come for rescue
    If he has proof he should go to court instead of making statements every 2 months

    I request the JD(S)-Congress in Karnataka to appeal in Supreme Court for amending the 'Anti-Defection law'.

    Unless there is a lifetime ban on MLA's who voted to with people mandate who likely to cross over the corrupt political system can't be curbed.

    For the sake of the nation and to uphold its democratic values I request Association of Democratic Rights or any like-minded citizens to file PIL in Supreme Court for urgent attention.

    Any defection of winning candidate is against the mandate of the people. It should be curbed with the strong anti-incumbency law.

    We Kannadigas don't need another Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur or Goa repeated in Karnataka.
