In an exclusive interview to Rajya Sabha TV, JD(S) President and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda says JD(S) won’t just be the kingmaker but the king as it will form the government on its own in Karnataka.

He minced  no words in targeting chief minister Siddaramiah. He accused the CM of playing the communal card and engaging in divisive politics.

Gowda does not find it appropriate to criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi and dismissed reports about JD(S) being the ‘B’ team of BJP.

Gowda said the need of the hour was that all secular regional parties come together.
