Prime News, Karnataka, National, Bengaluru, March 27:- Former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) supremo H D Deve Gowda on Tuesday hit out at Congress national president Rahul Gandhi and said time would tell whether the JD(S) would become Congress’ ‘B-team.’
“When Siddaramaiah was deputy chief minister and Dharam Singh was chief minister, we were team B for Congress and now again whether we become team B for Congress or Congress will become team B for JD(S), we will watch,” Deve Gowda said.
Recently in a public meeting, Rahul Gandhi said, “JD(S), they have to make it clear whether they are the BJP’s B team or not.”
“They (JD-S) have to make it clear whether they are supporting the BJP, if yes, why? The JD(S) stands for ‘Janata Dal Sangh Parivar’,” he added.
Deve Gowda further clarified that they would not have any post-poll alliance except with Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party.
“No post-poll alliance, except Mayawati,” he said. –(NGB, Inputs: Agencies)
