Will stand with Left next year’s Lok Sabha polls, says former PM HD Deve Gowda

Former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda on Saturday said he will stand with the Left front in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Talking to news agency ANI, Deve Gowda said he will stand with left parties in next year’s Lok Sabha polls as the Janata Dal (Secular) on Friday released its second list of candidates for the upcoming May 10 Karnataka Assembly elections.

As per the list, HP Swaroop will contest from Hassan constituency instead of Deve Gowda’s daughter-in-law Bhavani Revanna.

Deve Gowda also batted for the introduction of the Women’s Reservation Bill, saying that it would be the “first best thing” after the opening of the new Parliament building.

In a tweet, the JD(S) chief said he has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to consider reintroducing the Women’s Reservation Bill which Gowda had taken up in 1996, saying that it would be “the first best thing to do as we move into a new parliament building soon.”

Gowda said when the Election Commission announced polls in Karnataka and released the number of eligible women voters in the state, unsurprisingly the women formed 50 percent of the total electorate and such statistics are the same in other parts of India.

The former PM said the poll commission’s list made him revisit the idea of women’s reservation in legislative assemblies and Parliament and thus he urged PM Modi to consider passing the Women’s Reservation Bill before next year’s Lok Sabha elections with “suitable modifications to the draft presented in 1996 and 2008.

Gowda said granting women one-third reservation in the country’s legislature would be a landmark move in promoting gender justice and women’s empowerment, adding that it would be a symbolic gesture before the move into the new parliament building…. “Our mothers and daughter deserve better from us.”

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath attacked the opposition on Tuesday and said that the INDIAlliance is planning to loot the country by dividing the people on the basis of caste and religion. Adityanath was addressing an election rally in Gaisdi where he was seeking votes for the BJP’s Lok Sabha candidate from Shravasti Saket Mishra and the party’s nominee for by-elections in Gaisdi Lok Sabha seat Shailesh Kumar Singh Shailu.

He said the BJP is serving the public under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and they do not practice discrimination and are working with the spirit of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas. At the same time, INDI alliance wants to loot the country by dividing the country’s people on the basis of caste and religion, which BJP will not allow to happen.

The chief minister said that people have come to know about the intentions of the INDIA bloc, as a result they are saying together in one voice — Phir ek baar Modi sarkaar, ab ki baar, 400 paar. The UP CM said the people are replying to them (INDIA bloc) and saying that they will bring back those who have brought Ram.

He added that the INDIA Bloc is making malicious attempts to encroach on the rights of people in Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Backward Castes categories. He said everyone should remain cautious and all alert about the conspiracy being hatched by INDIAlliance. Adityanath sharpened his attack on the INDIA bloc and said the opposition parties are using all kinds of tricks to come back to power.

Adityanath pointed out that the deeds of the opposition parties are not hidden from the public. They are planning to conduct a survey of the property of people for the removal of poverty from the country. He said everyone should remain cautious and alert as the opposition parties are planning to implement inheritance tax which is similar to Jaziya imposed by Mughal emperor Aurengzeb.
