I only said my party unit in Kerala is getting along with the LDF government as things within my party units outside Karnataka remain unresolved after our alliance with the BJP. I wish CPM leaders had chosen their words better or had sought clarification,” Deve Gowda posted on X (Previously Twitter).

“We all may remember Janata Dal aligning with the BJP in 2006. Deva Gowda betrayed the ideology of his own party in order to ensure the Chief Minister’s post for his son.

Sumalatha has now aligned with the BJP,” Kerala CM mentioned.
Congress will have to no longer ridicule itself by means of reciting Deve Gowda’s declare of an ‘illicit affair’, he added.
