Bangalore, Apr 29 (UNI) Senior Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP)leader Venkaiah Naidu today said the Congress, Janata Dal(JD)S and Samajawadi Party(SP) made an under-hand dealing among themselves to defeat the BJP in the ensuing assembly elections to Karnataka.
Talking to newspersons here, he alleged that JD(S) would not field its candidate in Shikaripur constituency, where SP President S Bangarappa is contesting against former Chief Minister and BJP leader B S Yeddiyurappa.
Mr Naidu said the people of Shikaripur would vote for Mr Yeddiyurappa to enable him to rule the destiny of the State again.
The BJP leader said it is unethical on the part of disgruntled parties to act in connivance prior to the poll only to defeat the BJP, but the party would expose their nefarious designs to the people.
To a question that Mr Yeddiyurappa is likely to contest from two constituencies, he said the former Chief Minister would contest only from Shikaripur.
Mr Naidu also criticised the United Progressive Alliance(UPA) Government at the Centre for its failure to curb the price rise of essential commodities. BJP would highlight the issue during its poll campaign, he said.
