'I will be king, not king maker', HDK tells British envoy

British Deputy High Commissioner to India, Alexander Evans who called upon JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday morning, asked the latter if he would emerge as the "king maker" in the upcoming Assembly elections.

Evans, who paid a courtesy visit to Kumaraswamy's house for a breakfast meeting, wondered if the popular sentiment was true.

Kumaraswamy however said that he would emerge as "king" and not king maker. "According to me, JD(S) will get a clear majority," he said.

When Evans wondered if it would be a "narrow" or a "substantial" majority, Kumaraswamy said that it would be the latter.

"We will get a substantial majority as the farming community depends on my party," added Kumaraswamy.

Evans was accompanied by Dominic McAllister, British Deputy High Commissioner in Bengaluru, and Alex Cameron, Head of Political and Bilateral Affairs, British High Commission.
