Mangaluru : JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy today attacked the BJP and the Congress and said that both the parties have been misguiding the people with statements on religion and community in the run-up to the Assembly elections in the state.
Addressing the media Kumaraswamy said, “With elections approaching, Congress and BJP are misguiding the people with statements on religion and community. They are not speaking about development in the state.
Attacking the Congress, he said, “Chief minister Siddaramaiah has given a statement that Congress does not require the support of JD(S). But I want to tell him, we did not go to his office offering support. His party itself begged our support to retain power in many local body elections across the state. So we will face the election independently and will show our strength, and prove who we are.
