Thakur later left for attending the Conference on Federalism.
Thakur's meeting with the Home Minister comes ahead of BJP-JDS combine plans to parade 129 MLAs before President Pratibha Patil here this evening to drum up its claim for the formation of the government in the state, which was placed under the President's rule last month.
Rajbhawan sources said in Bangalore that the Governor in his report has outlined the chronology of events since the fall of the JDS-BJP government headed by HD Kumaraswamy.
This included the dharna staged by the BJP to mount pressure for inviting it to form a government and opinion of legal and constitutional experts on the claim by the saffron party to form the government with JDS support.
Thakur has also referred to his meetings with Kumaraswamy and BJP delegations, they said adding the report contained several annexures in the form of newspaper clippings and also letters written to the Governor by Congress leaders.
