Shivamoga: Taking a jibe at JD (S) chief HD Deve Gowda, BJP leader K. S. Eshwarappa on Wednesday said if the former prime minister had 28 sons, he would have fielded all of them from different constituencies in the forthcoming general elections.   

The senior BJP leader from Karnataka was indirectly accusing the JD(S) supremo of dynasty politics. While Deve Gowda himself is a sitting MP, his son HD Kumaraswamy is a Chief Minister and another son is a cabinet minister. His two grandsons have been given tickets to contest the Lok Sabha polls.

“If Deve Gowda had 28 sons then he would have fielded each of his sons from the 28 constituencies by making them candidate from there,” KS Eshwarappa told ANI.

He further took a dig at “grand-alliance” (Mahagathbandhan) of opposition parties and added, "The mahagathbandhan is nowhere it all has broken up. Mayawati is out, Akhilesh Yadav is out, AAP is out. Let’s see who else joins the Mahagathbandhan till elections. The strength of BJP is increasing day-by-day”, he added.

Karnataka, with 28 Lok Sabha seats will go for polls in two phases. While 14 seats will go to the polls in phase 2 on April 18, the rest 14 will vote in phase 3 on April 23.
