Bangalore, Oct 7: Many of the Janata Dal (S) legislators, not ''happy'' with the party's decision of not handing over power to the BJP, have decided to appeal to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to ''change his mind.'' Speaking to the sources JD(S) legislator and son of Former Karnataka Chief Minister J H Patel, senior Mahima Patel said a majority of the party legislators had disapproved of the decision of party President H D Deve Gowda on power transfer.

The dissident legislators held a separate meeting after the JDLP meet convened by the Chief Minister this morning and distanced themselves from the party's stand.

''The JD(S) legislators, who are not happy with the decision, will take their own stand within a few days'' he said.

Claiming that the JD(S) decision on power transfer was taken by 'a few and selected leaders' and was 'imposed' on the party, Mr Patel said, ''It is highly unethical on the part of the Chief Minister not to honour the commitment to the BJP''.

Legislators, who were in favour of upholding the political values, were prevented to air their views during the October four Party State Executive meeting, Mr Patel said.

About the future course of action he said he was in touch with a majority of the ''disgruntled'' legislators and would take a 'final decision' if the Chief Minister failed to heed their opinion.
