BJP state president BS Yeddyurappa said that the saffron party couldn’t perform as per the calculations due to Congress-JD(S) coalition government. On Saturday, the ruling Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) had said that it would extend its coalition alliance with Congress in Karnataka to the urban local bodies (ULBs) across the state to keep the Opposition BJP out of power.
However, Yeddyurappa said that he was confident of BJP’s victory in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
BJP has won the municipal elections in Shivamogga. It also happens to former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa’s home ground, who had earlier declared that the saffron party would win at least 50-60 percent of the seats.
