Bangalore, Oct 15 (UNI) The Janata Dal(S) today alleged that the UPA Government at the Centre had 'overruled' Karnataka Governor's recommendation to dissolve the Assembly and kept it under suspended mode for ''ulterior motives''.
Speaking to newspersons at a resort on the outskirts of the city, party spokesman Y S V Dutta said after the fall of the Kumaraswamy Government, all political parties were looking for early elections and even Governor Rameshwar Thakur had recommended the Centre to dissolve the Assembly and impose President's Rule.
''The UPA Government, which received a report from the Governor over the political situation, succumbed to Congress leaders' pressure and kept the Assembly under suspended animation,'' Mr Dutta alleged.
He said many rumours were set afloat by both the BJP and the Congress to create confusion among the JD(S) MLAs. To clear such confusion, the party had convened a two-day meeting of its Legislature Party at the resort from today.
''The meeting would take stock of the political situation in which every legislator would express his or her opinion to be presented before party supremo H D Deve Gowda to take a final decision.'' Mr Datta said barring one or two MLAs, all others were participating in the meeting, which would chalk-out the future course of action.
Earlier, speaking to reporters, State JD(S) President Merajuddin Patel said there was no differences of opinion among the MLAs in facing mid-term polls. ''The Party is one and firm in going to the polls rather than forming government tying-up with other parties,'' he said.
