Nikhil won't enter politics says Kumaraswamy 16.12.2017

"By no means will Nikhil enter politics," said Karnataka State JD(S) President H D Kumaraswamy.

Speaking to reporters after his birthday celebrations, Kumaraswamy categorically denied rumours that his son Nikhil would enter politics.

"Nikhil will however, participate in the partys poll campaign," Kumaraswamy said.

Kumaraswamys clarification puts to rest all conjectures that the former Chief Ministers son would foray into politics during the 2018 polls.
