Congress, JD(S) to form coordination committee

BANGALORE: The former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) President, H.D. Deve Gowda, on Wednesday held a meeting with the Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, on the political developments in the State in the aftermath of the removal of three Janata Dal (S) Ministers from the Cabinet and elevation of the Revenue Minister, M.P. Prakash, as the Deputy Chief Minister.

On his arrival in Bangalore, Mr. Deve Gowda told The Hindu that the meeting was aimed at ensuring a smooth run for the coalition Government.

The Congress and the Janata Dal (S) leadership were serious at working closely for the coalition Government to put in a good performance.

The Congress has constituted a coordination committee at the party level under the leadership of the General Secretary in-charge of State affairs, A.K. Anthony.

The six-member committee comprises the KPCC President, M. Mallikarjun Kharge, the Chief Minister, Dharam Singh, the former Union Minister, C.K. Jaffer Sharief, the Law Minister, H.K. Patil and the former Minister D.B. Chandre Gowda.

The two parties have also planned to constitute a coordination committee at the Government level under the chairmanship of Mr. Dharam Singh.

The Janata Dal (S) would finalise its list of three members shortly, he added.
