Bangalore, Nov 3 (UNI) In a sudden development, Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur today held discussion with former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.

Mr Kumaraswamy, who met the Governor on his invitation, however, declined to divulge the details of the discussion.

Mr Thakur, who is expected to submit his final report on Monday to the President, reportedly consulted Constitutional experts.

It was understood that the discussion was about disqualification issue of the group of JD(S) legislators, who broke away and formed the Government with the support of BJP in February 2006. The case is till pending with Assembly Speaker Krishna.

JD(s) President H D Deve Gowda had written to the Speaker to disqualify his party legislators, who had joined hands in forming coalition Government. The case had dragged on without any early solution in sight.

Mr Kumaraswamy told newspersons outside the Rajbhavan that the Governor had expressed his displeasure over BJP launching indefinite dharna demanding invitation to form the Government.

Replying to a question, Mr Kumaraswamy said if BJP failed to sign the MoU sent by Mr Gowda, JD(S) may not hesitate to withdraw the support to BJP.

To another question, the former Chief Minister said he was not aware of parading BJP-JD(S) legislators before Ms Prathiba Patil in New Delhi on Monday. ''I was not consulted by BJP on this issue and I am not aware of it'', he added.

Meanwhile, former Deputy Chief Minister and Senior BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa has slipped into 'Mouna Vratha' (silence) on the issue and was refusing to talk to the media since last three days.

Mr Yeddyurappa adopted similar penance earlier.
