Bangalore, Feb 2: Karnataka chief minister-designate H D Kumaraswamy, along with the MLAs supporting him, would meet JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda on Thursday evening to "clear" the differences with his father over forming the new government, a day ahead of the swearing-in ceremony.

Kumaraswamy, who has stuck to his guns in installing the JD(S)-BJP government defying Deve Gowda’s plea to rebels to retract their steps, has asked MLAs supporting him to assemble by 4 p.m. today.

JD(S) spokesman Y S V Datta said that Kumaraswamy, along with MLAs, would meet the former prime minister to hold discussions with him.

Ahead of the meeting with the MLAs, Deve Gowda has summoned senior leaders M P Prakash, P G R Sindhia and D Manjunath for consultations on the future course of action the party has to take in the event of rebels going ahead with their plans on government formation.

Deve Gowda has stepped up his moves to lure back the rebels and the consultations with them comes in the backdrop of the JD(S) national executive likely to meet in Delhi on Friday, where the party was expected to take a view on the issue.

The party supremo was expected to leave for the national capital either this evening or by tomorrow, Datta said.

Kumaraswamy had declared in categorical terms that there was no question of his going back now, having come so far on the issue of forming a new government.

Meanwhile, preparations are in full swing for the swearing-in of the new government on the portals of Vidhana Soudha, the state secretariat, in Bangalore on Friday.
