Mysuru: The JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda said his party will go it alone in the 2018 Assembly polls and not tie up with the Congress.
“We will not repeat the mistake now. While the Congress is striving to regain its lost ground, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed to begin his Navabharat scheme from Karnataka, by announcing new programmes. The JD(S) will go to the people with just the developmental works executed during our tenure. As people have seen the 20 months of able administration of H D Kumaraswamy as chief minister, they will support us. People now understand the need for a regional party in Karnataka,” said Gowda.
Dismissing reports that the JD(S) would form a grand alliance on the lines of the one that was constituted in Bihar to defeat the BJP, Gowda said the JD(S) would maintain a safe distance from both the Congress and the BJP.
