Kumaraswamy added that he is not bothered about the BJP’s criticism.
It is interesting to note that after weeks of tussles over Lok Sabha seat sharing with Congress, JDS had agreed on 8 seats. Out of the 8 seats, the party is fielding dynasts from 3. While party patriarch HD Devegowda is contesting from Tumkur, his elder son Revanna’s son Prajwal Revanna is contesting from Hassan and Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil is contesting from Mandya Lok Sabha seat.
