On "The Countdown", Prannoy Roy and Shekhar Gupta speak with the BJP's R Ashok on whether facing a combined Janata Dal Secular-Congress force would make the going difficult for his party in winning Karnataka seats in the national election. "The Congress and the JDS workers are not cooperating with their party leaders. They are fighting on the streets. The party in the higher level they are in a coalition. The party in the cadre level, they are opposing. That's why it is going to benefit the BJP," Mr Ashok said. "Compared to 2014, the Modi wave is better, especially in Karnataka," he added.
