Janata Dal (Secular) with crucial votes of three MPs will hold its political affairs committee meeting on Sunday to decide its stand with regard to the confidence motion.

JD(S) chief HD Deve Gowda, who arrived in New Delhi on Saturday to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, refused to divulge his party's strategy, saying he will consult his party leaders before deciding on whether they should support the government.

The Prime Minister had on Friday called up Deve Gowda to seek his party's support during the trust vote on July 22. Deve Gowda is expected to meet Singh in New Delhi to discuss the issue further.

JD(S) leaders on Friday authorised Gowda to take an appropriate decision on the matter.

The former Prime Minister has said any decision on supporting the UPA government during the upcoming trust vote in the Lok Sabha will be taken keeping in mind the interests of JD(S).
