Former PM attacks Rahul over 'B' team remark

Janata Dal (S) supremo H D Deve Gowda on Monday exuded confidence that his party will prove that it is the 'A' team and form the government in the state defeating both the national parties, the Congress and the BJP.

Addressing a gathering as part of 'Vikasa Parva' rally in Hassan on Monday, the former prime minister attacked All India Congress Congress president Rahul Gandhi who had called the JD(S) the 'B' team of the BJP, and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

"Rahul Gandhi reads out the speech prepared by local leaders, condemning the JD(S). He has not given any assurance to coconut, arecaunut and potato growers of the district," Gowda he said.

"Siddaramaiah, who began his political journey from the Janata Parivar, became chief minister. But, he has been declaring a war against the JD(S), to destroy the party. The people would teach him a befitting lesson in the elections," he warned.
