10 rebel Congress-JD'>Karnataka Congress-JD(S) MLAs write to Mumbai Commissioner of Police stating "We are staying at Hotel Renaissance Powai in Mumbai, we have heard HD Kumaraswamy & DK Shivakumar are going to storm the hotel, we feel threatened. Do not allow them to enter hotel premises"
Dr K Sudhakar, Congress MLA: This is the stand that I took when this alliance was formed. I said on on the day 1 that Congress-JD(S) alliance was purely based on electoral requirements. It is a very unholy alliance, this is what I have been saying since day 1. #Karnataka
The Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka says talking about the valour of our armed forces makes his vote-bank unhappy. Mr. Chief Minister, what votebank is this? May I remind Congress-JD(S) that polls are in Bagalkot not Balakot across the borders!
The people's mandate is clearly for a Congress-JD(S) Govt. The combined vote share of the parties is much higher than that of the BJP. Congress has polled 7 lakh more votes than the BJP. #CongressDefeatsBJP
Both 'prayers' of Congress to the SC, to quash Governor's decision to invite BJP to form govt & to invite Congress-JD(S) instead, have been rejected. Yet Congress is claiming victory, like Rahul Gandhi had claimed 'moral victory' after defeat in Gujarat elections:Dr
