Mysuru: Janata Dal (Secular) Supremo H D Devegowda ruled out the possibility of ties with the Congress party and said, his party will battle it alone in all the 224 Assembly constituencies of the state in the forthcoming state Assembly elections.
Talking to news reporters in Mysuru, PM Modi has talked of Navbharath launch from Karnataka by organising 6 massive programmes and accused both the national parties of using money to grab to power.
