New Delhi, Oct 1: The BJP is considering no such demand for an extended term for Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy in the state beyond October 3, BJP president Rajnath Singh said here today.

Answering newspersons on Karnataka developments, Mr Singh said there was no such demand or proposal under the party's consideration. The party was totally united on the issue of transfer of Chief Ministership to BJP and its Legislature party leader B S Yediyurappa, he said putting to rest the ''rumours'' about divisions in the party.

The BJP president declined to make any comments on the Karnataka developments since it was under discussion and could not say anything that could jeopardise the talks.

Under the agreement, the JD(S) has to hand over its Chief Ministership to BJP on October 3 and support the government for the last 20 months of the term of Karnataka Assembly.
