Bengaluru: Realising that the JD(S)-Congress coalition has become shaky after the exit of the H.D. Kumaraswamy government on Tuesday, JD(S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda has instructed his MLAs to prepare to go it alone in the Assembly bypolls which would be necessitated if the resignations of the rebel MLAs are accepted.

Talking to party MLAs at the JD(S) office, Mr Gowda said, "We do not know what the thinking in the Congress party is now. If they do not want the coalition to continue, we should be prepared for such an eventuality and fight the by-elections on our own," he said.

 

Mr Gowda also gave the legislators a pep talk on the need to build the party from the grassroots. "After losing the Tumakuru LS polls, I did not lose heart and pushed myself to work harder," he said. He thanked the MLAs for standing by their leader (Mr Kumaraswamy) and  criticised the BJP for bringing down a democratically elected government.
