When the two parties formed the government, they mutually agreed that the Janata Dal (Secular) will hand over power to the BJP on October 3, 2007.
But the relationship between the two parties reportedly soured within a few months and speculations have been rife over whether the JD (S) will hand over the reins of the state to the BJP.
However, Kumaraswamy has assured local BJP leaders that there is nothing to worry about as he is committed to the transfer of power. He added that he would convince his father, the JD (S) supreme, about handing over power to the BJP.
Incidentally, the chief minister had not sought his father's permission while entering into the power-sharing agreement with the BJP.
According to Kumaraswamy, the present situation is different and his father is the final authority on party affairs.
