JDS Formally Joins BJP-Led NDA

New Delhi: Janata Dal (Secular) led by former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy formally joined the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Friday.

Kumaraswami met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi for this formal merger in NDA. BJP president JP Nadda and Goa CM Pramod Sawant were also present.

Former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) leader, HD Deve Gowda, along with his son, HD Kumaraswamy, on Thursday met with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP National President JP Nadda to discuss a potential alliance between the two parties in Karnataka for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The leaders also deliberated on the seat-sharing arrangement for the upcoming general elections.

The probability of JDS joining the NDA gained momentum in recent past after senior BJP leader BS Yediyurappa hinted at the possibility of collaborating with JD(S) for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Under this potential arrangement, JD(S) would field candidates in four out of Karnataka’s 28 constituencies.
