Hubli, Nov 26: Indicating the imminent split in the JD(S), rebel leader M P Prakash today said he will not stay anymore in a party where there is no independence and Right for Self Expression. ''JD(S) Supremo H D Deve Gowda and his son and former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy have become dictators in the party. There is no place for a dedicated worker in this party,'' he alleged.
Speaking to newspersons here, he reiterated his decision not to attend the working committee meeting of the party, scheduled for November 29.
He said he would hold the meeting of 'like minded' legislators a day earlier to chart their 'own course'.
He would also hold a meeting of his supporters in the JD(S), who were opposed to the dictatorial ways of the party leadership, shortly.
He said still more than 30 JD(S) Legislators were ready to support the Congress to form an alternative Government in the State.
