Talking to newsmen here Mr Devegowda said that the two leaders exchanged views on resolving the crisis. He said the cloud of uncetainty over power transfer would be cleared by the Party National Executive meeting in New Delhi on October Five. Even the BJP Parliamentary Board is meeting in New Delhi tomorrow where the sisue would be discussed, he added.
Ruling out the possibility of joining hands again with Congress to form government in Karnataka Mr Gowda said, "such proposals are not before the party at present." Meanwhile Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Mr B S Yediyurappa, who had submitted his resignation to the Chief Minister along with 16 other BJP ministers yesterday, expressed confidence that the transfer of power would be smooth.
