JD(U) likely to contest from 10 LS constituencies in State

The Janata Dal (United) on Thursday stated that it was likely to contest from 10 Lok Sabha constituencies in the State based on its pre-poll alliance with Janata Dal (Secular), which is keen on the formation of third front with 11 other political parties at the national level.

Speaking to mediapersons, the JD(U) State president M P Nadagouda said that the party had already received several names from the local party leaders for the candidature from the 10 constituencies.

He said that the names and the future course of action in Karnataka will be discussed at the party convention to be held at Patna on February 8 and 9.

The JD(U) is hoping to win at least one seat from Karnataka, with Nadagouda himself likely to contest from Bagalkot. From Shimoga, the JD(U) is likely to field B Dharmappa, a former MLA from Sagar constituency.

Nadagouda said that the party was focusing on strengthening its cadre to achieve the goals.

“Post Delhi elections and the AAP victory, our cadre is also hopeful of achieving success without money or muscle power in the upcoming election,” he said.

Nadagouda also fuelled speculations of a possible alliance with the AAP in Karnataka by stating that he was in touch with the local leaders of the party.
