Karnataka crisis: BJP parliament board to meet today
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | October 04, 2007 10:54 IST
The Bharatiya Janata Party has convened a meeting of its central parliament board in New Delhi on Thursday afternoon to take stock of the ongoing power tussle in Karnataka. The meeting will be held at the party headquarters.
The scheduled power transfer in Karnataka seems to be a distant dream for the BJP now, with coalition partner Janata Dal-Secular refusing to hand over the reins of the state. But party president Rajnath Singh is still hopeful that his meeting with JD-S chief Deve Gowda on October 5 will yield positive results.
Singh told mediapersons on Wednesday that he expected the JD-S to honour its commitment and hand over power to deputy chief minister and BJP leader B S Yediyruppa.
