The much awaited coordination committee meeting of Congress and JD(S) was held today, presided by former chief minister and Congress legislature party leader Siddaramaiah, but failed to reach an understanding on seat sharing in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. They have decided to meet again.
AICC General Secretary and Karnataka Congress in-charge K C Venugopal admitted after the meeting that the discussion on seat sharing is incomplete and said they will meet again. “The JD(S) had given a number of seats they wish to contest and we have examined it”, headed.
However, Siddaramaiah putting a brave face said that the talks are moving in the right direction. While the JD(S) wish to contest a minium of 12 seats, he said no final decision was taken in this regard.
Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, JD(S) national spokesperson Danish Ali and Deputy Chief Minister and Pradesh Congress President Parameswara were also present in the meeting.
