The JD(S) in state is reportedly facing serious discontent as several of its sitting and former legislators are planning to join the Congress.
The differences cropped up in protest against the alleged autocratic functioning of the party by the state leadership, a senior legislator from Hassan informed Express on Thursday.
One JD (S) leader on conditions of anonymity said, “A clear picture would emerge in a couple of weeks.” As far as I am concerned there is no change of mind about leaving the party. Several others are also ready to follow suit,” said the MLA, who also was considered as the staunch supporter of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda. Several JD(S) leaders from other districts, including those from Mandya, Mysore, Tumkur and Kolar also have decided to join the Congress, he added. However, JD(S) state working president P G R Sindhia stoutly denied that any discontent was brewing in the state party. “It is a total lie. Nothing of that sort is going in our party,” Sindhia said.
