It is inevitable for the leaders of he BJP and JD(S) to join hands to ensure the defeat of Siddaramaiah – Political analysts
To expand the party in the South, the BJP is trying to include as many political parties it can directly or indirectly into its fold. For this, it is not missing out any chance.
Although, the leaders of both the BJP and JD(S) have been claming that they will not form an alliance post elections under any circumstances, it has become inevitable for them to enter into an understanding to defeat their common foe. Hence, the BJP may field a weak candidate in Chamundeshwari. The JD(S) may reciprocate with a similar candidate in Varuna, say analysts.
In Karnataka, the BJP has a secret pact with the Janata Dal(S) headed by former prime minister Deve Gowda, according to speculations in the political parties. Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had also alleged the same.
Political circles in Karnataka comment that JD(S) is nothing more than the B team of the BJP. According to speculations in political circles, to ensure the defeat of Mr Siddaramaiah and his son Yathindra, the BJP and the JD(S) have a secret pact. In Telangana it is emerging that there is a pact between the TRS and the BJP.In Tamil Nadu, after J. Jayalalitha’s death, the BJP is trying to turn the political situation in its favour. Not only has the ruling AIADMK become a BJP’s friendly party but Rajinikant who is yet to launch his party is clearly in favour of the BJP.
The BJP successfully ran its Mission 275+ in the last general elections with an aim to win a majority on its own. Roping in local parties, seem to be part of the BJP’s game plan for 2019 polls.
