Bangalore, Oct 29 (UNI) Virtually rebelling against JD(S) National President H D Deve Gowda, senior JD(S) leader M P Prakash who was negotiating with Congress to form next alternate government in Karantaka, today urged Governor Rameshwar Thakur not to invite BJP to form government in the State.
Speaking news persons after meeting Mr Thakur here, Mr Prakash said that any efforts to invite BJP to form government in the state would be inappropriate' as JD(S) has not adopted requisite procedure in extending its support to BJP.
Strongly opposing to align again with BJP to form government Mr Prakash maintained that the 'U' turn by JD(S) in its stand was nothing but 'departure from established political norms'.
Mr Prakash, who took initiative on the behest of party legislators to negotiate with Congress to explore the possibilities to form next alternate government, said that he still pursue his efforts to avoid elections. Stating that "situation may change in next two days in favour of forming non-BJP government in the state" Mr Prakash denied that JD(S) was heading for a split in Karnataka.
Referring a letter written by party president H D Deve Gowda to Prime Minister urging to take steps to dissolve the Karnataka Assembly, Mr Prakash said that Mr Gowda has done right thing and urged him to stick to his stand and avoid the practice of unethical political activities.
Stating that political stability can not be ensured by inviting BJP to form government as the issue of disqualification of 39 legislators was still pending before the Assembly speaker Krishna, Mr Prakash said that " if Speaker take different stand, the State would plunge into another political crisis. The Governor under the constitution has to obtain a legitimate opinion that the parties staking claim would be able to provide a stable government", he added.
