The history of political alliances in Karnataka is a dynamic one, with leaders like Kumaraswamy and Ashok coming together in the past. 

However, current dynamics are uncertain, with some leaders distancing themselves from potential alliances. Elder Deve Gowda reiterated his reluctance to align with the BJP, raising questions about the survival of parties formed on specific theories.

In a surprising twist, Minister MB Patil suggested that the BJP-JDS alliance might actually work in favour of the Congress. He emphasized that Congress is prepared to contest the elections independently and predicted victory in at least 20 seats.

With these varying perspectives, the Karnataka political landscape remains dynamic as the Lok Sabha elections draw closer. 

The BJP continues to grapple with internal challenges, while Congress leaders remain confident in their connection with the people, regardless of the alliance between their opponents.
