By winning 4-1 against BJP, JD (S)-Congress coalition has proved that it has won the hearts of the people of the state. It is the victory of state government’s people-friendly projects and CM H D Kumaraswamy’s pro-development attitude. With this election, Narendra Modi and his party’s communal agenda is defeated.”
JD(S) Spokesperson Sushil Noronha spoke on the occasion and said, “This is trial of upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Throughout India, BJP and its allies are going to lose. The price hike for essential items, implementation of GST and effects of Demonetization reflected in this election and people rejected the central government’s Tughlak policies.”
