GT Devegowda's statement comes in wake of the Congress-JD(S) alliance jolted with 11 MLAs submitting their resignation to the Assembly speaker on Saturday.

"If the Congress-JDS Co-ordination Committee decides to make Siddaramaiah the Chief Minister, I will have no objection," he told reporters.

Saying that the Cogress-JD(S) leaders are making effort to save government, the JDS leader said.

"If my party decides, I am ready to resign. I am not going to the BJP. Ours is a coalition government for the betterment of the state."

Talking about party MLA H Vishwanath, he said: "I spoke to H Vishwanath. He told me that he would come back to the party."
