Will the Karnataka deadlock be broken?
January 26, 2006 19:14 IST
Janata Dal-Secular chief H D Deve Gowda and the party's rebel legislators led by his son H D Kumaraswamy are holding a meeting in a bid to solve the ongoing political crisis in Karnataka.
The rebels had withdrawn support to the Congress-led coalition and joined hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party in a bid to form a government.
Deve Gowda had met Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday to find a solution to the crisis.
Party Sources said Gowda will consult the party's district chiefs after the meeting with the rebels.
As no party had a majority after the 2004 assembly election, the Congress, with 64 seats, formed the government with the help of the JD-S.
