In a show of solidarity against their “common enemy” — the BJP — top leaders of the Janata Dal (Secular) and the Congress on Tuesday announced that they would hold a ‘historic public rally’, with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and JD(S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda sharing the stage on March 31.

In a joint press conference on Tuesday, the parties said they were committed to defeating the “divisive, communal and anti-democratic” forces in Karnataka in the Lok Sabha elections. The rally will be held in the Bengaluru-Mysuru region.

Mr. Gowda said, "We are together on everything. Be it any Karyakartas or any leader, belonging to either parties, they should not speak or say anything that would affect the coalition dharma."
