State JD (S) president H D Kumaraswamy claimed that his party would come to power on its own strength at least in the four city corporations.

Speaking after inaugurating the party media centre here on Wednesday, he said that the party would wrest Mysore, Hubli-Dharwad, Davangere and Gulbarga city corporations.  According to him, the JD(S) has received positive response across the state. He said that people would definitely vote for the  JD(S) in the Urban Local Bodies which are going for polls on Thursday.

Stating that the results of the ULB polls would not be a referendum to his party, Kumaraswamy said that it would definitely boost the morale of the JD(S) workers. The party would win at least 1,600 to 1,800 seats, he added. Ruling out any loss to the party following resignation of former minister S K Kantha, the JD(S) president said that the party gave tickets to a few candidates suggested by Aruna C Patil, a JD(S) candidate from Gulbarga. 

“With regard to Maddur MLA Kalpana Siddaraju, the party had never said that she would not be given ticket to the Assembly polls. Former MLA D C  Thammanna was inducted into the JD(S) because of his popularity in the district.  We are working out a strategy to win the seven Assembly seats in Mandya. Just because one or two persons have resigned, it is not correct to say it is a set back for the JD(S),” he said.
