Karnataka polls: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi announces support for JD(S)

The BJP today announced 82 candidates, including elder brother of tainted mining baron G Janardhan Reddy and son of late chief minister S Bangarappa, for the Karnataka Assembly polls, taking to 154 the number of constituencies for which it has declared its nominees.

Asaduddin Owaisi told ANI, "We will not contest in upcoming Karnataka elections, AIMIM will support JDS and will campaign for them".

AIMIM has extended its support for former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda-led Janata Dal (Secular).

The BSP and the JD (S) have entered into an alliance to contest the Karnataka Assembly polls together. JD (S) leader P G R Sindhia had confirmed that his party was in talks with Asaduddin Owaisi for a formal tie-up ahead of the polls. And we feel that the two national parties have failed to live up to the aspirations and hopes of the people of Karnataka and that is why we made a decision to support the JD (S) completely. "MIM will not be fielding any candidates I will address public meetings support of JD (S) if there is need (sic)", Owaisi tweeted.

However, secular voices from all the corners accusing the JD (S) and its supporters to be a B-team of the saffron party. The first chance at chief ministership was given to Kumarswamy, while Yeddyurappa served as his deputy. "He too wants a regional party to come to power in the state, because he feels only such parties can address the issues of the people", Kumaraswamy said. Owaisi's support to JD (S) assured a major divide of Muslim votes in the region. The southern state will be voting on May 12 while the counting will happen on May 15. "We will not field any candidates this time, but will strengthen our party and contest the forthcoming municipal elections", he added.
