BANGALORE: The JD(S) seems all set to win where the BJP lost with the former quickly deciding to hold a series of state-level rallies in five different regions of the state in March and April. The BJP has cancelled such conferences following the porngate scandal that rocked the government.
State JD(S) president H D Kumaraswamy told Express here on Saturday before leaving for Hubli that his party will organise rallies of youth, women, SC/ST, backward classes and minorities in five regions of the state starting in the last week of March and in April.
“The ongoing state-wide tour of the party leaders has resulted in the creation of a powerful anti-BJP mood. This needs to be sustained and consolidated further. The proposed rallies will enable us to achieve these twin objectives,” he explained.
It may be recalled that the BJP, too, had announced of holding such conferences across the state at the same time, which it had to hastily cancel following the outbreak of the scandal in which three party MLAs were caught watching porn clips inside the Assembly.
Kumaraswamy claimed that the porngate scandal has not only dented the already battered image of the BJP but also made the people become angry.
“I can sense the betrayal among the people. Even the BJP workers are ashamed of their MLAs and are seething with anger. It is only a matter of time that resentment among the BJP cadre and people becomes more intense and widespread. The JD(S) will defnitely take advantage of this situation,” he former CM added.
