He appears before the media along with state Congress chief G Parameshwara, Mallikarjun Kharge, Ghulam Nabi Azad and other leaders.
Addressing the media He said, “Congress thanks the people for their verdict and we accept their mandate. Parties cannot, most often, win on its own. Sometimes we need to take support and help from fellow parties. So we have decided to join hands with JDS.
Our decision is that we will lend our support to JDS. We are yet to decide on the Chief Minister. The matter about who the governor or the chief minister will be done later. We have spoken to HD Devegowda and Kumaraswamy through a phone conversation. We are meeting them in the evening. We will give it to them in writing. Our numbers put together is more than BJP, so that is what has been decided “.
