Birthday Greetings, KA Council Support: BJP-JDS Camaraderie Grows

By Amogh Sahasrabhojanee


Prime Minister Narendra Modi, earlier this week, tweeted birthday greetings to senior Janata Dal Secular leader and former Karnataka chief minister, HD Kumaraswamy. Chief Minister BS Yeddiyurappa, central ministers Pralhad Joshi and Sadananda Gowda, many state ministers, BJP general secretary CT Ravi and MPs Pratap Simha and PC Mohan, also wished the opposition leader a happy birthday. Social media exchanges like these across party lines are not a rarity in politics -- but sometimes, they can symbolise a growing camaraderie between parties.
