Bengaluru: Under supervision of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, the JD(S) finally brought down its signboard from the Race Course Road building on Saturday.
Having lost the case in the Supreme Court, the JD(S) packed its belongings and started moving out the building. The party had been fighting the case over the property for almost a decade with the Congress party.
The case was finally disposed of in favour of the Congress party by the Supreme Court. On Saturday morning, soon after its curative petition was dismissed by the Supreme Court, Deve Gowda said the party office papers have all been bundled together and kept in a corner of the building.
“We are yet to find a site for our party office, despite having made several appeals to the BDA. For now, as a temporary arrangement, we are bundling the files and keeping them in a corner. We will ensure that the files do not create any hindrance to the Congress party workers entering the building,” said Gowda. He said the keys to the office will be handed over to KPCC president G Parameshwara on Sunday.
Gowda expressed his unhappiness over the party MLAs not supporting their floor leader H D Kumaraswamy during the direct attack by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on his son in the Arkavathi denotification issue.
