Recently jd(S) is on rise in coastal districts. See the below links Hundreads of Bjp,congress workers join Jd(S) in Sullia http://www.daijiworld.com/news/news_dis ... _id=154902 Sadananda shetty and various officers joined Jd(s),sadananda shetty announced candidate in mangalore south http://www.daijiworld.com/news/news_dis ... _id=153907 nagaraj Shetty joined jd(s) http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Man ... 934761.ece Discontented Congress workers join JD(S) http://www.mangaloretoday.com/mt/index. ... &type=2837 There are various such sources which indicate Jd(S) popularity on rise in Dakshina kannada district.Jd(s) is continously trying to get halady srinivas shetty and Shakunthala shetty to Party and is continously trying to improve its base. But my important Questions is 1) Will this increasing popularity just lead to rise in voting percentages or will it lead to Jd(S) opening its account in assembly elections? 2) Who is going to be hit more? Congress or BJP? Coastal districts have always been seen as a district where trends appear(BJP's innings first started in coastal areas only),is this the beggining of Jd(s) in Coastal districts?
