The Janata Dal (Secular) has in the past claimed to not support both the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the upcoming bypolls in Karnataka.
But the JD(S) now is openly calling for the need to have a stable government run by the BJP in Karnataka.
On Wednesday, former prime minister HD Deve Gowda once again gave hints that times are changing in Karnataka and his party is not averse to siding with the BJP.

Recently, Deve Gowda had tweeted endorsing PM Modi's act of picking up trash from Tamil Nadu's Mahabalipuram beach last month and Deve Gowda also put up pictures of his visit to the Statue of Unity.
Deve Gowda had also made a phone call to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa which both said was not an important call.
When questioned about this, CM BS Yediyurappa said, "There is no truth in this. Deve Gowda as a former PM has the capacity to decide what is right and what is wrong."

But Siddaramaiah, the former CM and leader of opposition in the Assembly is convinced a deal has been struck between the BJP and JD(S).

Siddaramaiah said, "What internal discussions have taken place I do not know but there is a discussion that has taken place and this is very clear. I do not know what are the terms and conditions but Deve Gowda has endorsed what Kumaraswamy said."
With North Karnataka ravaged by floods and the delay in getting the required help from the Centre, the BJP will surely need support from the JD(S). For HD Deve Gowda, it is all about a fight to save his party after the fall of the coalition government in Karnataka.
