Bangalore, Oct 27 (UNI) Former Karnataka Home Minister and senior Janata Dal(Secular) leader M P Prakash today said he would speak with former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and like-minded party legislators before deciding the future course of action.
Talking to newspersons after his arrival from New Delhi, where he had held talks with Congress leaders on a possible tie-up between the two parties, said: ''I will discuss about the latest development with Mr Kumaraswamy and like-minded legislators and decide about the future course of action.'' Mr Prakash alleged that the JD(S) Legislative Party (JDLP) meeting and the resolution passed to extend support to the BJP were not ''valid and official''.
''The JD(S) Legislative Party meeting has not followed the rules.'' The legislators were not intimated and hence the meeting was just a congregation of some MLAs, he added.
Stating that JD(S) President H D Deve Gowda had already written to President Pratibha Devisingh Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the dissolution of the Assembly, he said now all of a sudden extending support to the BJP was not understandable. It could have been done earlier, he added.
Criticising the statement of some of his party members that talks with Congress MLA Siddaramaiah amounted to the split of party, Mr Prakash said: ''I have not done it in that intention I will not indulge in such things in future also.'' UNI
