Bangalore, Oct 14 (UNI) The two-day Karnataka JD(S) legislature party meeting will begin here tomorrow to take stock of the political situation following the collapse of the coalition government.

Former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy, who also heads the JD(S) legislature party, invited all the MLAs for the meeting to be held in a private resort in the city outskirts.

The meeting comes in the wake of both Congress and the BJP trying to woo legislators from the JD(S) to ''form'' a government and 'avert' mid-term polls in the state.

However, Congress leaders said the party was averse to join hands with the JD(S), which toppled the party-led coalition headed by N Dharam Singh last year.

However, with the assembly being kept under suspended animation, both the parties were engaged in back-room maneuver.

Mr Kumaraswamy resigned on October eight after his government became minority following BJP's formal withdrawal of support on October seven.
