Mysuru, March 21:- “Former prime minister and Janata Dal (S) supremo H D Deve Gowda and party state president H D Kumaraswamy are known to back-stab the persons who trust them,” said JD(S) rebel MLA B Z Zameer Ahmed at a press meet held in the city on Wednesday.
“They are threatening me through others. I am not scared of their threats. They are calling me to rejoin the party. I will not join JD(S) again. I am already with the Congress. I will join the party in the presence of Rahul Gandhi and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on March 25,” he added.
“We abide by the decision of the court regarding Rajya Sabha elections. JD(S) is trying to blackmail the rebel MLAs. JD(S) leaders can’t defeat us and win the Rajya Sabha polls. I am sure of Congress winning the 2018 Assembly elections in the state,” he added.
Followers of Zameer Ahmed accompanied him at the press meet. (KS, NGB)
