BANGALORE: The joint session of the state legislature is likely to be convened from  January 30.

Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, however told reporters here on Sunday that the final decision will be taken at the January 3 Cabinet meeting. The session is expected to last 10 days.

To a question, the CM said he would hold talks with Opposition leaders on the timing of the session. He also said he was planning to hold the Budget session in the first week of March.

On the on-going tussle over the leadership issue in the state BJP, Gowda expressed confidence that everything would be solved amicably by the national leaders. “Yes there are minor problems and I am confident that all of them will be solved amicably,” Gowda said after he was greeted by senior officials on the new year.

When probed further on the leadership issue, Gowda refused to be drawn into a controversy and said, “My duty is to focus on the administration. The rest will be taken care of by the party high command.”

He also expressed confidence that his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa will not quit the party he had built. “He is a disciplined soldier of the party,” he said.

Yeddyurappa has been making efforts to replace Gowda ever since he came out of jail and is reported to have set January 15 as the deadline for the party high command to fulfil his wish.
