Former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda’s Janata Dal (Secular) is all set to form an alliance with BJP for the upcoming Loksabha polls in Karnataka. Former CM of Karnataka and senior BJP leader BS Yediyurappa confirmed that an alliance with JDS will be formed for the 2024 General Elections.
According to the inputs from Karnataka political circles, BJP has decided to enter into an alliance with JDS, as it needs Deve Gowda party’s support to take on a strong and resilent Congress in the southerm state.
JDS has good hold in south and central part of Karnataka. Also it has support base in Vokkaliga and Minorities communities. BJP high command feels that it can get benefited from JDS’s hold in these pockets.
