JD(S) will be 'king', not 'kingmaker': HD Kumaraswamy

JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy, on Saturday, lambasted at the Congress party and said that the JD(S) will win 100 seats and the Congress will get only 40 in the upcoming Assembly elections. The JD(S) will be the 'king' and not 'kingmaker', he said.

Kumaraswamy was speaking to reporters, after paying tributes to the statue of B R Ambedkar in front of the Town Hall, here, to mark Ambedkar Jayanti.

In response to the poll survey conducted by a media house, recently, Kumaraswamy said that media adviser to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Dinesh Amin Mattu, has worked in the survey. "I know how he (Mattu) influenced the survey. I have every document of it. According to the survey, while the Congress is expected to win 90-101 seats, the BJP may win 78-86 seats, and JD(S) is expected to win 34-43 seats. JD(S) will play the role of kingmaker in the state," he said.

Kumaraswamy said that people have decided to make us the king and not kingmakers. In the 2004 elections, the then survey had projected that the JD(S) will win just two seats. But, we won 52 Assembly segments. Compared to 2004, the party is much stronger," Kumaraswamy said.
