Hassan: Janata Dal (Secular) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda was evasive on Thursday on the possibility of his party backing the BJP government in the state, only saying cryptically, “Will I go to Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa’s house to forge an alliance?”

Mr Gowda, who was at a private function here, said he had come up in politics by  fighting for the people in a career spanning 60 years.


Fuming at news channels, which he claimed were misleading people with false information, he demanded, “Does the media have any sense? I had threatened to stage a dharna if the Yadgir inspector was not transferred, but the news channels reported something else.”

Meanwhile, former minister and JD(S) MLA H.D. Revanna on Thursday said if the Congress party wanted to keep the secular forces together,  it had to sit and discuss the matter with his party  and stop accusing its leaders of being experts in toppling governments.

“If the Congress party wants to keep communal forces at bay, let it display some integrity. But it does not want a relationship with the JD(S). So what can we do?” he told reporters.

Accusing the Congress party of double standards, he  charged that on the one hand it spoke about secular forces and on the other, tried to divide secular parties.

“Let people judge both the national parties,” he said, adding that  he would soon reveal what really transpired during the 14-month JD(S)-Congress government in the state.
