Cong-JD(S) aimed at saving 2 families, says BJP

The BJP on Saturday described the Congress-JD(S) alliance as an attempt to save the existence of two families – H D Deve Gowda family of JD(S) and Gandhi family of the Congress.

“Congress has lost confidence to face us (the BJP), in many constituencies they had to import candidates belonging to other constituencies. On the other hand, the family-run party (JDS) doesn’t even have its existence beyond three districts. With little choice left, they had to join hands to face us,” the BJP tweeted, reacting to show of unity by the leaders of the two alliance partners.

“The fact of the matter is that these two family-run parties have come together to save the existence of one family here in Karnataka and another family in Delhi. A desperate attempt to save their existence will be stalled by voters of Karnataka,” the BJP said.

The saffron party also accused the Congress of being communal and trying to divide the Hindu society.

“Deve Gowda family & Congress says they have come together to defeat communal forces. Reality is @DKShivakumar had, a couple of days back, openly admitted that his Congress govt was hell bent on dividing Hindu society, so ideally it’s Congress that’s communal & they have accepted it,” it stated.
