New Delhi, Nov 6 (UNI) Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur today met Home Minister Shivraj Patil and briefed him about the situation in the state following BJP-JD(S) combine staking claim to form the government.
Mr Thakur arrived in the Capital last night.
The Governor reportedly discussed with the Home Minister various options including inviting BJP-JD(S) to form the government.
The Governor briefed the Home Minister about the developments in the state after he had sent a comprehensive status report to the Centre on October 31 about the developments following the resignation of JD(S)-BJP government headed by H D Kumaraswamy.
Mr Thakur was criticised by the BJP for not inviting its chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa to form the government despite the coalition having support of a majority of the MLAs. The party plans to parade before President Pratibha Patil 129 MLAs supporting it this evening in support of its claim to form the government in the state.
Earlier, the BJP had staged a dharna to put pressure on the Governor to invite it to form a government in support with the JD(S).
