SP, BSP to ally with JD(S) in Karnataka

| | Lucknow

Bitter rivals Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj party in Uttar Pradesh, still wary of joining hands to counter the BJP, are likely to come on one platform in distant Karnataka.

The Bahujan Samaj Party announced to contest the upcoming Karnataka State Assembly elections in alliance with the former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda-led Janata Dal (Secular).

Deve Gowda has now invited the Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav to join the alliance and campaign for the Assembly elections.

Mulayam Singh Yadav was the Defence Minister in HD Deve Gowda-led United Front Government at the Centre in 1996.

Samawjadi Party sources here on Tuesday said party president Akhilesh Yadav will also campaign for the JD(S) in Karnataka Assembly polls.
