"The question of exploring the possibility of forming a government has not come to our mind. If there is such a possibility, our high command will take a decision. Currently, we have not thought of it", Deshpande told PTI here.
"Let the Centre act on the Governor's report recommending President rule. Let us await the decision of the President on the government," he added. JD-S leader H D Kumaraswamy has also said there were no plans to form an alternate government with Congress.
Congress had formed the first ever coalition government in Karnataka with JD-S in 2004 after the then assembly polls produced a fractured verdict. JD-S toppled the N Dharam Singh-led coalition government in 2006 and later formed another coalition with BJP support, which lasted for 20 months.
