This thread is dedicated to happenings in Jd(s) party. Today HD kumaraswamy had approached BJP district president and former MLA BG shivakumar in mandya and asked him to join the party and Shivakumar has agreed to it and will resign from BJP and Join jd(s).But what i am not able to understand is what has jd(s) offered him to accept Jd(s) and resign his post? Is jd(s) planning to give him ticket for assembly election. As far as i know the assembly tickets for the below five constituentcies are guranteed. K R Pet - Krishna(former speaker) Melukote - CS puttaraju Nagamangala - Cheluvaraya swamy Mallavalli - Annadani Srirangapattana - Ramesh bandi siddegowda? But Ticket for Maddur - Definatly kalpana siddaraju will be defined ticket mandya - Rumours are that party is not happy with SR srinivas. So Is JD(s) going to offer ticket for shivakumar in any of the above 2 constituentcies or is he offered any other position .Even there are rumours of DC thamanna joing Jd(s) and contesting from Maddur.but nothing is confirmed.
