Karnataka polls: Asaduddin Owaisi's AIMIM to back JD(S)

Facebook  Owasi

While MIM has not made a debut in Karnataka electoral fray, the party's ideologies have takers in pockets of Hyderabad-Karnataka region. The JD (S) already has a pre-poll alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and has the support of Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS). "If we contest, both Congress and JD (S) will also put up minority candidates, which will divide votes and help the BJP". "The central election committee of the party has decided the first 72 names for the ensuing Karnataka legislative assembly elections", said the BJP's state unit in a statement.

According to Owaisi, his party feels that both the national parties, the BJP and Congress, have failed to live up to the expectations and hope of the people of Karnataka and that's why they have chose to support the JD (S) completely.

Owaisi will also address public rallies if necessary to seek votes in favour of JD (S). With Owaisi's decision, a change in calculations has come about.

Mr. Owaisi had earlier said that "people of the country are fed up with BJP governance and Congress is not a viable option, neither it can become one".

Primary school placement day - did you get the place you wanted?
I caution anyone voting for an incumbent member this election which would only cause this to continue. I wasn't making much money and I was away from the kids way too much for what I could bring in.

Kumaraswamy said Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao, who had visited former prime minister and JD (S) supremo HD Deve Gowda's residence on Friday, had assured him that he would get Owaisi back the JD (S).

Karnataka has a sizeable Muslim population and the ruling Congress was attempting to consolidate non-BJP votes. I will address public meetings in support of the JD (S) if there is need,"Owaisi said". "We will definitely benefit from these coalitions".

According to Narayana, more than the likely benefits for the JD (S), Owaisi's support might hurt the Congress if some votes shift.

Karnataka polls are scheduled to be held on May 12, with the counting on May 15. "My party leaders and I will go campaigning in constituencies where the JD (S) leaders want me to go", he said.
