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

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

Kumaraswamy was addressing the media, subsequent to paying tributes to the statue of B R Ambedkar before the Town Hall, here, to stamp Ambedkar Jayanti. 

Because of the election survey directed by a media house, as of late, Kumaraswamy said that media poll to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Dinesh Amin Mattu, has worked in the overview. "I know how he (Mattu) affected the overview. I have each record of it. As indicated by the survey, while the Congress is relied upon to win 90-101 seats, the BJP may win 78-86 seats, and JD(S) is required to win 34-43 seats. JD(S) will assume the part of kingmaker in the state," he said. 

Kumaraswamy said that public have chosen to make us the king and not kingmakers. In the 2004 decisions, the then study had anticipated that the JD(S) will win only two seats. In any case, we won 52 Assembly seats. Contrasted with 2004, the party is considerably more grounded," Kumaraswamy said.
