Owaisi’s AIMIM to back JD(S)

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

HYDERABAD: The AIMIM on Mon­day an­nounced its de­ci­sion to back the JD(S), led by for­mer prime min­is­ter HD Deve Gowda, in the May 12 Kar­nataka Assem­bly elec­tions. The party pres­i­dent Asadud­din Owaisi said it has de­cided to sup­port the JD(S) af­ter “due con­sid­er­a­tion and con­sul­ta­tions”.

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 de­cided to sup­port the JD(S) com­pletely.

“We will not be putting up our can­di­dates,” Owaisi said, adding that he has al­ready spo­ken to Ku­maraswamy and as­sured him about his party’s sup­port to the JD(S).
