On "The Countdown", NDTV's Prannoy Roy and Maya Sharma speak with Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on whether the difficulties in running the alliance with the Congress would affect the outcome of the results. "Congress high command decided to support my leadership, so am thankful for that. But little local problems are there. Even in single-party government lots of problems are there," Mr Kumaraswamy said. On whether his father HD Deve Gowda would be in the race for prime minister's seat, he said, "I think he's not interested. His main concern is to bring a new political system in India to save the country."
