Shivamogga: "Madhu Bangarappa too is like my grandchild and hence there is no disparity between the way efforts are being made in constituencies like Mandya and Hassan and efforts made in Shivamogga," said JDS Supremo H D Devegowda.
Addressing a party workers' rally here, HDD said that Madhu is the coalition candidate and everyone has to work beyond their capabilities to make sure that Madhu wins the election.
"Even Congress leader D K Shivakumar is working very hard for Madhu's victory," he said.
Answering a query by the reporters with regard to the seat-sharing confusion, HDD said that the confusion never existed between the coalition partners, while it looked like only the media were confused.
Taking a jibe at PM Modi, HDD said that when the Chinese counterpart was in India, Modi had taken him to Gujarat to seek the blessings of his mother.
"Ultimately China stood by Pakistan. Is this the outcome of your World Tour, " he questioned, adding that when he was the PM for ten months, no untoward incidents took place in Kashmir.
"During my tenure, I gave 4 per cent reservation for Kashmiris and ensured recruitment of Kashmiris into the military. I also opened a railway line and created jobs," he said.
