Mysuru, March 2:- MLA of Chamundeshwari Constituency and former minister G T Devegowda is all set to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). BJP sources said that Devegowda held a secret meeting with the party’s national organising secretary B L Santhosh in Bengaluru recently.
The MLA has been skipping JD(S) activities for some time now and is reportedly seen with BJP leaders in all the district events. After the collapse of the Congress-JD(S) coalition government, the differences between JD(S) and Devegowda were clearly visible to the people.
The MLA has been actively supporting BJP leaders on several fronts. The official entry of GT Devegowda to BJP is only a matter of time. The Karnataka unit of BJP is awaiting nod from the high command.
Meanwhile, JD(S) is seriously contemplating to suspend Devegowda from the party on grounds of anti-party activities. (KS, NGB)
