Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (DC)

Bengaluru, Aug 10: BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa has instructed his party leaders to be cautious while selecting candidates for the local body elections since the Congress and the JD(S) are expected to hitch alliance.

There are chances of Congress-JD(S) joining hands especially in Uttara Kannada, Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Chikkamagaluru, Shivamogga, Mysuru, Davanagere, Chitradurga and Kodagu.

"Hence we need to be careful while choosing our candidates and we need to change our election strategy," he has reportedly told his party leaders.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters, Yeddyurappa lashed out at the state government over farm loan waiver and said, "Those who came to power promising farm loan waiver, still are unable to clear issues related to it,"
