New Delhi, Nov 2 (UNI) Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur is expected to submit his final report to the Centre on the political situtation in his state within the next four days, highly placed sources said here today.
Mr Thakur has been in the process of seeking views of legal and constitutional experts, especially in the context of the JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda's yesterday's letter to the BJP listing 12 conditions. He had reportedly consulted former Chief Justice M Venkatachallaiah.
The Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA) will discuss the Karnataka situation after the receipt of the Governor's report. The southern state of Karnataka plunged into a political crisis early last month in the light of the refusal of the JD(S) to honour the power-sharing agreement with the BJP at the end of its 20-month tenure with H D Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister.
After no party was in 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 the BJP-led government in a bid to avoid a split in its legislature party in the wake of attempts by a section of partymen led by former Deputy Chief Minister M P Prakash to strike a deal with the Congress.
What has been keenly awaited is the state Governor's response to the BJP's claim to forming the government.
BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa had claimed that he had the support of 129 MLAs in a house of 225, though the backing of 113 MLA was sufficient to form a government.
