The Chief Ministerial candidate of the JDS-Congress alliance- JDS Chief Deve Gowda’s younger son Kumaraswamy made some shocking allegations about the BJP. He accused the BJP leaders of resorting bribery to allure the JDS MLAs onto their side.

Speaking at a press conference he said, “ They have offered 100 crores to each JDS MLA and several cabinet posts. Where is all this black money coming from? Is this how you are serving the country? What are the income tax officials doing?”

He also revealed that the BJP had made this offer to him too but he would never betray his father and that he has learnt from his mistake after supporting the BJP in 2004 and 2005.

The final verdict has come in favor of the BJP but could the allegations of bribery be the reason behind the victory or is it the gimmick of the opposition to defend their loss?
