The expulsion of Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and other rebel MLAs from the JD(S) seems to be on the cards, with party president H D Deve Gowda having decided to take all necessary action against those who have flouted the party's principles and discipline by aligning with BJP.
"The party president will take all necessary steps, including expulsion of all those who have violated the principles and discipline of the party inspite of their status and position," JD(S) spokesman and secretary Kunwar Danish Ali told PTI.
Ali said the national executive meeting of the JD(S), convened on February 20, would ratify Deve Gowda's actions against the rebels.
Kumaraswamy led a group of 41 JD(S) rebels to join hands with BJP to form the government in Karnataka on Friday. Ali said the JD(S) president had a fresh round of discussions with senior leaders on the Karnataka developments.
Besides Ali, party vice president Bapu Kaldate was present. Deve Gowda also had telephonic conversations with some state unit presidents and asked them to take all necessary steps to save the identity and ideology of the party, Ali added.
