Bangalore, Oct 7: Karnataka Chief Minister Kumarswamy today said that he would meet Governor Rameshwar Thakur today or tomorrow and request him to provide an opportunity to seek vote of confidence on the floor of the assembly.
Speaking to newspersons after the JD(S) legislature party meeting here he said the meeting had discussed in detail about the latest political development and had authorised him to meet the Governor.
Mr Kumaraswamy claimed that a 'lobby' within the BJP had prevented him from transferring the Chief Minister's post to party designate B S Yediyurappa.
He alleged that a conspiracy within the BJP had prevented him from transferring the power. Without naming any leader he said a lobby of state BJP leaders had succeeded in doing so.
"Till now the outcome of the meetings of JD(S) President Deve Gowda with party emissary Yashwant Sinha and BJP national President Rajnath Singh is not revealed to anybody. Why did this happen," he asked.
