JD(S) supremo Deve Gowda has asked coalition partner Congress to treat regional parties well before striking an alliance for the forthcoming Lok Sabha.
Congress is big brother of secular parties. They Congress should treat us well before striking an alliance for the Lok Sabha polls later this year. The seat-sharing talks are still on, he said addressing party workers.
Gowda also advised Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, who is also his son, to tolerate the pain he is suffering while running the coalition government.
I am not going to blame anyone I know how much pain Kumaraswamy is undergoing running the coalition government. He should tolerate this to realise the goal. Whatever the pains, the party has to brush these aside and move forward, the former Prime Minister said.
