Alleging step-motherly treatment by the Union Government towards Karnataka, JD(S) national president H D Deve Gowda stressed the need to make his party return to power to set right injustice.

After inaugurating the party office at Chikpet on Sunday, he said the Congress and BJP have failed to fulfil the aspirations of the people and had behaved in an ‘irresponsible’ manner on the Cauvery water issue resulting in injustice to the state. “The Congress-led UPA Government gazetted the final orders of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal by succumbing to pressure from Tamil Nadu. All my efforts to prevent the Centre from notifying the final orders went in vain. Karnataka will face real problems in the coming days,” he said.

Gowda said the government was now supplying water through tankers to Bangalore, keeping in mind the Assembly elections.  He announced that former IPS officer M C Narayanagowda would contest on a JD(S) ticket from the Chikpet Assembly constituency and called upon the party workers to ensure his victory.
