Talking to reporters after meeting party leaders, Kumaraswamy said, "The government will fall anytime and we (JD(S)) should be ready to face the election."
Kumaraswamy also slammed the BJP and said that the party had launched a 'Operation Kamala' to poach JD(S) MLAs to save their government. Kumaraswamy said in confidence, "No JD(S) legislators will fall a prey to this... all our MLAs are with us."
BJP had suffered a huge setback recently when it lost the Bellary by poll to rebel candidate B Sreeramulu. He was a close aide of mining barons G Janardhana Reddy and G Karunakara Reddy and contested the polls as an independent candidate. There were also strong indications that he might float a regional party after he highlighted the treatment meted out to the Reddy Brothers and how the BJP was not thankful of the role played by them to ensure victory for the party in the state.
Karnataka CM Sadananda Gowda, however, maintained that the outcome of the Bellary polls will not have any impact on the stability of his government. Kumaraswamy commented that he would not do anything to destabilise the BJP government, but expected it to fall on its own.
On his action plan to make full use of the prevailing situation, Kumaraswamy said that he has directed party leaders to prepare a list of 100 candidates who are sure to win and send the list to party supremo H D Deve Gowda. There were also discussions on plans to strengthen the party across all levels.
