JD(S) demands 2:1 seat-sharing in Karnataka, Congress eyes lion’s share
The Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition in Karnataka is headed for a battle over seat-sharing as the Lok Sabha elections near.

Former prime minister HD Deve Gowda sparked a controversy on January 1 by demanding more seats for the JD(S) for the general election.

Banking on the crucial victories in three ‘Hindi heartland’ states — Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan — Congress, on the other hand, is hoping to get a lion’s share of seats.
