Bengaluru: Congress, JD(S) likely to seal deal for Rajya Sabha, council elections


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 22: Elections are scheduled to be held for legislative council and Rajya Sabha in June and July respectively. In all likelihood, the JD(S) and the Congress might strike an understanding for seat sharing so that their respective candidates sail through the election process without any hitch.

If the two parties come together, they can win three seats in the council election while in the Rajya Sabha election, they can bag two seats. In accordance with this plan, the Congress has proposed to JD(S) to sacrifice three council seats in exchange for one Rajya Sabha seat which it is willing to offer to the JD(S). In the council election, Congress can win two seats and JD(S) one as per their respective strengths.

Likewise, one Rajya Sabha seat can be won by the Congress on its own, but for the other seat, both these parties have to unite, failing which both will lose this seat. JD(S) is not totally agreeable for the proposal. The JD(S) leaders have proposed to select a person who is acceptable for both the parties for the second seat.

The Congress is ready if Deve Gowda is interested to get elected to Rajya Sabha. As per the current calculations, the JD(S) might field H D Deve Gowda while the Congress may field Mallikarjun Kharge. Kupendra Reddy of the JD(S) is retiring from the Rajya Sabha and he is interested in becoming a member of the legislative council, but Saravana of his own party is also eyeing this seat.

    Congress, JDS, Samajwadi party, extinct Nationa Conference and many other political parties are primarily Dynastic organizations.....They follow the dictatorial dogma, any opposition to the family, inherently is banished away to oblivion !!!

    When will Congress learn. When will they change for Gods sake. I just heard saw on a local TV channel that Ramanth Rai of bantwal is coming back to politics and 'serve' Congress. So , Its for sure Modi in 2024. So guys we have to wait till 2029 for any change in the Cong leadership or revival. It will be the same old gang and giving the same old result.

    Congress is a funny party. They get elevated and exited when someone calls Priyanka by her inherited maiden name, but they get disgusted and agitated when someone addresses Sonia with her real name.
    Be fair guys!

    Cannot agree more! Today someone was addressing Yogi as Ajay Bhist with Congi Chelas cheering. Whey Sonia is addressed as Edvige Albina Antanio Maino, all hell breaks lose. In fact they recently filed a FIR against a journal for the same reason.

    What a shame. Cannot contest individually to share platform with bjp. We are seen few months back how last government functioning where in HDK always having tears in his eyes. Both Grand Ajja Gawda and Kharge are big-wigs in the way of wealth.
