Bangalore, Nov 2 (UNI) Former Karnataka Chief Minister and JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy today said the letter sent to BJP President Rajnath Singh by his party supremo H D Deve Gowda contained mere ''advises'' and had not stipulated any conditions.

Talking to newspersons 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 the 12 points listed, which included dissolution of the State Assembly if Parliament was dissolved so that simultaneous elections to 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 the JD(S) has extended unconditional support to the BJP,'' the JD(S) leader said.

Mr Kumaraswamy exuded confidence that BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa, who was his deputy when the 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 confidence vote on the floor of the Assembly,'' he said.
