Bangalore, Oct 15 (UNI) Janata Dal(S) today alleged that UPA government had 'overruled' Karnataka Governor's recommendation to dissolve State assembly and kept it under suspended animation for ulterior motives.
Speaking news persons at a resort on the outskirts of the city, party Spokeperson Y S V Dutta accused that after the fall of the Kumaraswamy government, all political parties were looking for early elections and even Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur had recommended the center to dissolve assembly and impose President's rule.
"The UPA government which received report from Governor over the political situation succumbed to Congress leaders and kept Assembly under suspended animation," Mr Dutta alleged.
He said that many rumours were set afloat both the BJP and the Congress to create confusion in the mind of JD(S) legislators. To clear such confusion the party had convened the two-day legislators' meeting at the resort from today. "The meeting would take stock of the political situation in which every legislators will express his or her opinion and it would be presented before the party supremo H D Deve Gowda to take final decision," he said.
Mr Datta said that barring one or two party legislators, 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 informed that there was no difference of opinion among the legislators in facing mid-term polls. "The Party is one and firm in going to the polls rather than forming government tying-up with other political parties," he said.
