Bangalore, Nov 2: Former Karnataka Chief Minister and JD(S) leader H D Kumarsawamy today said that the letter sent to BJP President by his party supremo H D Devegowda contained mere 'advises' and it had not stipulated any conditions.

Speaking to news persons here he said there was no need to attach any 'special meaning' to the matters listed in the letter. Mr Gowda had sent the letter to Mr Singh for signature indicating acceptance of 12 points which among others included dissolution of the State Assembly if the Parliament was dissolved so that simultaneous elections to the Parliament and the state could be held in Karnataka. "These are mere advises and not conditions. In a coalition set up such interaction is needed for smooth conduct of the government. The new government will be formed in Karnataka and this letter will not come in its way. However it must not be construed that JD(S) has extended an unconditional support to the BJP," he said.

Mr Kumaraswamy expressed confidence that Mr Yeddyurappa, who was his deputy when JD(S) led government ruled the state earlier, would become the next Chief Minister.

"I want to express myself over various political incidents that had taken place after the collapse of my government early last month. This includes the happenings within my party as well. I will speak out when Mr Yeddyurappa seeks the confidence vote on the floor of the Assembly," he said.
