Deve Gowda seeks people's support

JD(S) backward classes convention held; top guns  from across the State attend

Janata Dal(Secular) supremo H D Deve Gowda on Sunday claimed that his party was the only party to ensure social justice in the State. Addressing a mammoth gathering at the backward classes convention of the party, ahead of Lok Sabha elections, at the ground opposite Maharaja’s College in the city, Gowda invited both Congress and BJP for an open debate on social justice.

Addressing party workers, an emotional Gowda recalled the unsavoury incidents of his life, where his two sons H D Revanna and H D Kumaraswamy had to undergo difficulties. “I was in jail that time, when my pregnant wife was found ill at home. Revanna had to discontinue studies, to take care of his mother. Likewise, Kumaraswamy too had to endure difficult paths,” said Gowda.

Instrospection

Without taking any names, Gowda said that those people who spoke ill about the party had to introspect. “I will not stoop low, and demean others”. Gowda appealed to the party workers to save the party by extending their support in the coming Parliamentary elections. He also reiterated that the party was giving equal preference in the rank and file of the party against being reduced to a family show, as alleged by his detractors.

Former chief minister and Ramanagar MLA H D Kumaraswamy said that the debacle of Congress had begun. The ongoing Kalasha Banduri lift irrigation works would serve as a pointer to the party’s failure, as the party had consistenly failed to fulfil the promise, whenever it was in power.

Kumaraswamy said that if the voters support the party in the Parliamentary elections, people could expect to reach their woes to the authorities concerned at the Centre, especially in Cauvery river water sharing dispute between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
