Bangalore, Oct 7 (UNI) Many of the JD(S) legislators, who are not happy with the party's decision not to hand over power to Bharatiya Janata Party have decided to appeal Chief Minsiter H D Kumaraswamy to change his mind.

Speaking to UNI senior Mahima Patel, JD(S) legislator and son of Former Karnataka Chief Minister J H Patel, said that majority of the party legislators had disapproved the decision of party President H D Devegowda not to hand over power to BJP.

The dissident legislators held a separate meeting after the JDLP meeting convened by the Chief Minister this morning and distanced themselves fromt he party's stand.

"The JD(S) legislators who are not happy with the party's decision on the issue and will take their own stand within a few days" he said.

Claiming that the decision of JD(S) was taken by 'a few leaders' and selected leaders and was 'imposed' on the party, Mr Patel said, "It is highly unethical on the part of Chief Minister not to honour the commitment it was made to hand over power to BJP".

Charging that legislators, who were in favour of upholding the political values, were prevented in airing their views in the October four meeting of State Executive of JD(S) held in the city.

About the future course of action Mr Patel said that he was in touch with majority of the disgruntled party legislators and would take a 'final decision' if Chief Minister failed to heed their opinion.
