Ahead of the parliament poll, various politically charged scenes are to be expected.
It is in this context that the Janata Dal (Secular) chief HD Deve Gowda getting emotional is being seen.
This as he announced that his grandson Prajwal Revanna would be the candidate from Karnataka’s Hassan.
Hassan is a constituency that HD Deve Gowda currently represents in the Lok Sabha.
Prajwal Revanna also started crying as he saw his grandfather in tears.
As images of the grandfather-grandson duo was splashed across local TV channels, the opposition BJP dismissed the public display of emotion, tweeting “First Drama for the 2019 elections begins now”.
The Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) – coalition partners in Karnataka – have arrived at a 20-8 seat-sharing agreement. The JD(S)’s share includes Shivamogga, Tumakuru, Hasan, Mandya, Bengaluru North, Uttara Kannada, Chikkamagaluru and Vijayapura.
Opposition has alleged that JDS workers were ignored for party tickets for Lok Sabha election to make way for HD Deve Gowda’s family.
