'Some JD(S) leaders want to join Cong'

 KPCC president G Parameshwara on Wednesday said some disgruntled JD(S) legislators have evinced interest in joining the Congress.

He told reporters the legislators approached the Congress and the party will take an appropriate decision in this regard as the next Assembly elections nears. Parameshwara, however, did not reveal names of these legislators.

JD(S) has suspended eight legislators on charges of anti-party activities. They had cross-voted in favour of the Congress in the Rajya Sabha elections held in June last year.

Parameshwara said the resignation of senior leader S M Krishna from the Congress will affect the party and expressed hope that the high command will convince him to stay back in the party.
