May 25, 2008 10:48 IST

He said these are early trends and that he would talk only after a clear picture emerges in the afternoon.

"We don't want to shake hands with the BJP or Congress. Even on Saturday, they had said that the JD-S is untouchable. Let us see," former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy said in his initial reaction.

Kumaraswamy blamed the media for creating a campaign against his party saying it was against them from the beginning.
