Addressing presspersons, he said it was, however, too early to identify the new allies. He was confident that the Janata Party would make its presence felt not only in the coming elections but also in State politics. He would make efforts to strengthen the party at all levels, he said.
Mr. Manjunath, former Shimoga MP, who resigned from the BJP and joined the Janata Party recently, said he did so because the Janata Party offered unlimited opportunities for new experiments to build it.
He said the party, which only had a symbolic existence, received a fillip when Vijay Mallya, MP, assumed office as its Working President. He said he had taken as a challenge the task of building the Janata Party, and sought the cooperation of the party functionaries at all levels. Mr. Manjunath said he silently suffered the "suffocating atmosphere" in the BJP for the past several years although he continued to serve it sincerely. Like many other parties, the BJP also changed its ideology to suit its political convenience, he charged. Mr. Manjunath was given a warm reception by Janata Party workers when he arrived in his home town.
