If JDS gets just 30-40 seats in the coming elections I will retire from politics: Former CM HDK

Mysuru, October 20, 2022 (www.justkannada.in): “If JDS gets only 30-40 seats this time in the coming elections I will stay away from politics. This is my decision,” said former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy.
Speaking in Mysuru today, he said, “the MLAs of our party should not be in a misconception that I will be the Chief Minister even if JDS get 30-40 seats. We will make some person the Chief Minister and I will guide him.”
Kharge will be another power center for Karnataka
Responding to Mallikarjun Kharge being elected as the President of AICC, H.D. Kumaraswamy said that it is Congress party’s internal matter. “However, we feel happy as a Kannadiga has adorned the coveted post. Earlier, Nijalingappa was the AICC President. But the Congress party then and now is different. Let us wait and see whether Khargeji will get the opportunity of functioning independently. For Karnataka he will be another power center,” he observed.
On the occasion, H.D. Kumaraswamy pleaded the people of the state to help him win with a majority. “I promise to implement our 5 projects in 5 years. If I fail in it I will dissolve the party itself. I am saying these words standing in the sacred Chamundi hill. If the five-point program has to be implemented, it will not be possible from an alliance government. It will be possible only if we get complete majority. That is why I am saying that I will not become the CM if there will be an alliance government, he added.
Nikhil Kumaraswamy’s contest in Assembly election
The former Chief Minister hinted about the contest of his son Nikhil Kumaraswamy in the coming assembly elections. “The JDS party’s 126 candidates list is ready. Nikhil has decided to tour the state by using his own strengths. His name might be there in the list of 126 candidates which is ready now,” he said.
