Shimoga, Apr 28 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) General Secretary Anant Kumar today alleged that the Congress and the Janata Dal(S) were attempting a post-poll pact after the assembly elections to Karnataka to deny an absolute majority to BJP, but their nefarious designs would not succeed.
Talking to newspersons here, after monitoring nominations filed by the BJP candidates in Theerthalli and Shimoga, he said the party was aiming to provide a stable and pro-people Government in the State.
Mr Kumar said Congress was riven with dissidence and party- hoppers, while JD(S) was filled with 'unhappy' leaders. Considering the exigency of the situation, people would elect the BJP to rule the destiny of the State, he added.
He said out of 224 assembly constituencies, BJP had already released a list of 216 candidates and the remaining eight candidates would be announced with a few days.
The BJP leader alleged that the former Prime Minister and JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda was trying to prevent a single-party majority Government by attempting for ''Hung Assembly'' in the State.
