Chandrababu Naidu to meet Deve Gowda tomorrow

Bengaluru, Nov 7 (PTI): TDP supremo and Andhra Pradesh

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is trying to unite

opposition parties to take on BJP in the Lok Sabhaelections

next year, will meet former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy here on Thursday.

Naidu will meet Gowda at his residence at Padmanabha

Nagar and Kumaraswamy would also bepresent during the

meeting, JD(S) said on Wednesday.

Interestingly, Naidu's meeting with the JD(S) supremo

comesin the backdrop of Congress-JD(S) coalition resolving

tocontest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections together against the

BJP,buoyed by the victory in the bypolls.

The Congress-JD(S)coalition in Karnataka on Tuesday won

two of the three Lok Sabha seats and both assembly

constituencies in the fiercely fought by-polls, giving a shot

in the arm to the ruling combine that faces frequent questions

about its longevity.

BJP had managed to hold on to the Shivamogga Lok Sabha


The electoral sweep by the ruling coalition comes as a

boost to it as the by-polls were seen as a barometer of the

public mood ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Naidu had called his Karnataka counterpart over phone on

Tuesday and congratulated the latter on the JD(S)-Congress

combine's "spectacular victory" in the by-elections.

JD(S) MLC Sharavana said Naidu's meeting with Gowdais in

continuation of the discussions the Andhra Chief Minister was

holding with "secular" party leaders across the country.

"The bypolls results that have come is a good

development as people of state have understood the need for

secular forces. He (Naidu) is expected to seek Deve Gowda's

cooperation," he added.

Naidu had also recently met NCP chief Sharad Pawarand

National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, amongothers.
