Cong is my first enemy, says Kumaraswamy

JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy has said that Congress is his “first enemy”, as it is making concerted efforts to dent the regional party’s prospects.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru on Tuesday, Kumaraswamy said that the Congress was trying to harm the prospects of the BJP in the Rajya Sabha and Legislative Council polls.

As both the JD(S) and BJP have fielded a second candidate in the Council elections, he said that he would hold talks with the saffron party leaders and decide on extending support. Both parties are short of numbers to get their second candidates elected.

He clarified that the upcoming elections were not a contest with Congress leader and Energy minister D K Shivakumar. “This is not a fight against D K Shivakumar. He is strategising to ensure that his party candidate wins and I am doing the same,” he added.
