Karnataka news: Taking a dig at Janata Dal Secular-JD(S) for entering into an understanding with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for Lok Sabha elections 2024, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, while questioning the regional party's secular credentials, alleged that it doesn't have any ideology and would do anything for the sake of power.

He also said that his statement calling the JD(S) as BJP's 'B-team', is hence proved.

"I had called JD(S) as BJP's b-team, it is getting proved now. JD(S) people used to get angry at me, when I called them b-team. Also they have named themselves as Secular -- Janata Dal (Secular)- but have joined hands with communal party," Siddaramaiah said.

Speaking to media in Hubballi, the Congress leader said, "Deve Gowda (JDS chief) used to say JD(S) will not have an understanding with any party, but now has made GT Devegowda (JDS coordination committee chief and MLA) say that the party is joining hands with BJP for its survival. It proves that they don't have any ideology, and that for the sake of power they will do anything."

The BJP will have an understanding with former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda-led JD(S) for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, former Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had said. As part of the poll understanding, the JD(S) will contest in four Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka, which has a total of 28 constituencies.

The BJP swept the 2019 Lok Sabha polls in Karnataka by winning 25 seats, while an independent (Sumalatha Ambareesh from Mandya) backed by it won in one seat. The Congress and JD(S) won one seat each.
