Two days after praising JD(S) leader HD Devegowda , Prime Minister Modi does a one-eighty. “JDS stands in third place. By voting JDS you would be wasting your valuable rights”, said Modi.

Recently he had praised Devegowda in Udupi. It was highly surprising to note that how he criticized JD(S), on Thursday in the city.

He was talking on the outskirts of the city near Kengeri campaigning for BJP. He said election survey, political pundits, analysts, have all said that JD(S) will not form the government. Therefore voters should not make the mistake of voting  JDS.

"JDS will definitely be defeated in the election. Even they know that they will not win. They are trying everything possible, like bringing in anti-social elements to terrorise the voters.

Former Chief Minister SM Krishna, Central Minister Anantha Kumar, and former Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda were with him on the dais.
