Deve Gowda dismisses exit poll findings
By Thehindu 21-May-2019
In a brief interaction with reporters at Mannargudi where he, along with his son and Karnataka Public Works Minister H.D.Revanna, offered prayers at the Sri Rajagopalaswamy Temple, the former Prime Minister pointed out that in 2004 it was predicted that BJP would form the government in Karnataka. But the Congress secured 63 seats and Janata Dal (Secular) bagged 58 seats, resulting in the BJP not being able to form the government as predicted in the exit polls, he said.
Answering a query on releasing water in the Cauvery to Tamil Nadu as per the Tribunal and Supreme Court verdicts, Mr.Revanna maintained that the storage in the dams in Karnataka was not sufficient to release water to Tamil Nadu. Hoping for adequate rain, he said once the dams get filled up, water would be released to Tamil Nadu in the Cauvery.
Mr.Gowda and Mr.Revanna offered worship at the Sri Sarangapani Temple in Kumbakonam and Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple in Srirangam during the day.
Meanwhile, the Thamizhaga Cauvery Vivasayigal Sangam sought the Karnataka government’s support for building a dam across the Cauvery at Rasimanal on the inter-State boundary.
क्या कांग्रेस का महागठबंधन से अलग रह के चुनाव लड़ने की वजह से बीजेपी को पूर्ण बहुमत मिला है?
