Karnataka political crisis persists, as BJP awaits Governor’s invitation to form Govt.November 14th, 2007 - 8:15 am ICT by admin
The CCPA met here under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
It did not discuss the report sent by Governor Rameshwar Thakur on the latest political situation in the State.
The Governor had sent his report on the political situation to the Centre on Wednesday night.
The Cabinet may take up the issue on Friday.
The BJP is mounting demands on the Centre for formation of a BJP-JD (S) Government in the State.
BJP leaders, including President Rajnath Singh, L K Advani and Venkaiah Naidu, on Wednesday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and urged him to revoke the President’s rule in the State.
The President’s rule was imposed in the State on October 9 after BJP withdrew support from its coalition with the JD (S) due to differences over transfer of Chief Ministership as per the power-sharing agreement.
Three weeks after a bitter public spat, both parties came together last weekend deciding to form the next coalition in the State under B S Yediyurappa’s leadership.
Meanwhile, former Deputy Chief Minister and a senior JD (S) leader M P Prakash who has revolted against his party’s decision to back the BJP, met JD (S) President Deve Gowda.
Prakash ruled out any split in the party but remained firm on not joining the coalition.
A Congress Core Group also discussed the political situation in the State on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Deve Gowda wrote an 11-point ”Memorandum of Understanding” to BJP chief Rajnath Singh.
The understanding between the BJP and JD (S) in Karnataka will only be till the next Lok Sabha elections, says one of the points in the MoU. (ANI)
