Owaisi’s AIMIM to back JD(S)
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).
