JD(S) chief, H D Kumaraswamy said that Ambareesh would make an important announcement in a couple of days. Ambareesh had met with Kumaraswamy on Saturday night.

Kumaraswamy said that Ambareesh wants the JD(S) to come to power. He would analyse the situation and make a decision soon. He accused Siddaramaiah of speaking lightly about Ambareesh. "Had it not been for him, Siddaramaiah would have lost by a margin of 10,000 votes during 2006, Chamundeshwari by-elections", Kumaraswamy also said.

He also expressed concern over actors campaigning for politicians. He said that there is no problem in actors campaigning, but they need to identify themselves with a political party and work for its victory.
