Jayaprakash Hegde, Ramesh Kumar to Join JD(S), Claims Datta

Bengaluru: Should what Y S V Datta, JD(S) leader and MLA from Kadur, claims come true, there could be a total polarization in the state politics and the entire scenario could change within six months.

Speaking to mediapersons in Badami of Bagalkot district on Sunday, Datta said that the time was opportune for all the former Janata Parivar leaders who had migrated to other parties to come together under a single banner.

He claimed with confidence that many leaders including former Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Korgi Jayaprakash Hegde and former assembly speaker and sitting Congress MLA from Srinivaspur of Kolar K R Ramesh Kumar would soon join Janata Dal (S).

Both Hegde and Kumar were earlier in JD(S). Hegde was expelled from Congress for contesting as an independent candidate in the last elections to the legislative council.

Ramesh Kumar, in spite of being a Congress member, is often seen as a one-man opposition party, often putting the ruling party in a fix with his outspoken views in the house or elsewhere.

Datta also claimed that many other former JD(S) leaders like B L Shankar and M P Nadagouda, who had left the party and joined other parties, were set to return to their old camp.

With the support of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), JD(U) and pro-Kannada organizations, the JD(S) would re-emerge as a powerful entity and would give a decisive challenge to the national-level parties in the state in the 2018 election, Datta said.

He added that his party would submit a complaint against the present governor, Vajubhai Vala, for showing disrespect to former PM and JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda by refusing to meet him in Raj Bhavan and making him wait recently.

District-level agitation would be begun to demand the recall of the governor from the state, he stressed.

Regarding the appointment of Yeddyurappa as the state president, Datta said that the BJP was in a state of delusion that it could come back to rule the state with the help of caste power.

Calling Yeddyurappa just a leader of a certain community, he stated that the BJP would not come to power by using the caste card.
