New Delhi, Nov 1: The Karnataka situation did not come up for deliberations at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA), Finance Minister P Chidambaram said.

The Minister, however, refused to disclose the issues that were taken up by the CCPA, stating that nothing of any news value figured at the meeting.

The CCPA had been expected to discuss the political developments in Karnataka, where the Janata Dal (Secular) had initially refused to honour the power sharing agreement with the BJP at the end of its 20-month tenure with Mr H D Deve Gowda as the Chief Minister.

After no party was in a position to form a government for the remaining 20 months, the Centre imposed President's rule in the state, but kept the assembly under suspended animation.

The JD(S) subsequently agreed to support a BJP-led government in a bid to avoid a split in its legislature party in the wake of attempts by a section of partymen to strike a deal with the Congress.

The state Governor's response to the BJP's claim to forming the government is awaited.
