JD(S)-BJP likely to forge alliance for zilla, taluk panchayats

The BJP and the JD(S) are working on forging an alliance for grabbing power in the zilla and the taluk panchayats where there is a hung verdict in the recently held polls.

Senior BJP leader and Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda met JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda and discussed the issue here on Thursday.

Sadananda Gowda told Deccan Herald that he had discussed with Deve Gowda over forming an alliance with the JD(S) in the zilla and the taluk panchayats and the latter also showed his willingness to the proposal. However, Deve Gowda sought two more days to discuss with the party leaders of the State before taking a final decision.

It was learnt that both the leaders have agreed to the formula that the party with the highest numbers will get the president post while the alliance partner will get the vice-president’s post.

With no political party getting a majority in 11 zilla panchayats and over 40 taluk panchayats in the polls, parties were struggling to muster the required numbers. JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy indicated his inclination to ally with the BJP.
