Karnataka: JD(S) offers unconditional support to BJP
November 04, 2007 22:07 IST
The Janata Dal (S) on Sunday agreed to hand over the letter pledging "unconditional" support to the BJP for forming a government in Karnataka.
"We have responded favourably to the BJP's request to tender a letter declaring JD(S)'s unconditional support to the BJP-led government," former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy said.
In the letter submitted to Governor Rameshwar Thakur on October 27, the JD(S) has already declared "unconditional support" and even the individual affidavits filed by 129 MLAs clearly said their support to the government was unconditional, he said.
When a BJP delegation called on the governor on Sunday afternoon, he told them that in his report to be sent to President Pratibha Patil [Images], he would mention that the support was "conditional" following which they approached the JD(S).
State BJP president D V Sadananda Gowda met Kumaraswamy and placed the request for the letter and the former chief minister agreed.
