Bengaluru: Siddaramaiah-Deve Gowda cold war, LS seat sharing delayed


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Mar 13: The doyens of Karnataka state coalition politics, former PM Deve Gowda and former CM Siddaramaiah are vying to take control of seat sharing for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Both are using different tricks to hold the decision making power. For the same reason, the finalization of seat sharing among the coalition partners of the state government is getting delayed.

Both the leaders are trying to save the coalition and at the same time secure their foothold. Hence both are trying to overpower each other. Deve Gowda is trying to increase his clout in the coalition by eyeing Hassan, Mandya, Shivamogga, Tumakuru, Chikkaballapur, Mysuru and Bengaluru North Lok Sabha constituencies.

Siddaramaiah, who is as well-versed as Deve Gowda in state politics, is trying to retain his power in the coalition as well as increase his control in Congress by using different tactics.

Rumours are also making rounds about the Congress leaders who are against the JD (S) about instigating Sumalatha to contest from Mandya against the JD (S) candidate.

Though Congress and JD (S) have formed a coalition government due to the prevailing situation in state politics after the last assembly elections, there is no guarantee that the same situation will continue in the future also. If Congress loses its existence, then it may take many years for the party to get a hold in state politics again. It is learnt that Siddaramaiah is making his strategy based on this thinking. For the same reason even the Congress high command is facing issues in seat sharing.

Deve Gowda started his counter attack by demanding the Mysuru Lok Sabha constituency for JD (S). He has also given the option of fielding Sumalatha as a Congress candidate from Mysuru, if Congress is not willing to give the Mysuru Lok Sabha seat to JD (S).

    JDS has nothing to lose, they will have their Moolah if Cong ditches them. Its Cong who needs JDS badly for survival. So Siddu better listen to Deve Gowda.

    Actually have always been stating that Siddu is an arrogant scheming double headed snake> He will ensure that he finishes off JDS in state. Will not be surprised if JDS loses in Hassan & Mandya

    Quite obvious. Din't jds team up with bjp in old mysore region in order to defeat cong in assembly elections . Or else jds would have been reduced below 30.

    Wonder why jds is not even intrested for bengaluru rural seat where they are quite strong. Once again it shows that Dkshi is agent of jds. Ppl should be aware of these adjustment politics.

    The recent opinion poll clearly indicates JD(S) is likely to win in two seats only. Inspite of enjoying the charity of the Congress in ruling the state with minority numbers the JD(S) is deliberately and clandestinely supporting the BJP by seeking more seats than they deserve. Deve Gowda has always behaved as a power monger and selfish politician interested only in his family and not the State of Karnataka.

    That too in difficulty. In mandya its 50-50 and in hassan if A manju contests than it will be a close contest. So this time they dont have any safe seat.
