STORY: India's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday (May 17) strongly criticised federal ruling Congress party as well as Hansraj Bhardwaj, Congress leader, and governor of southern Karnataka for recommending President's rule in the state.

 

Addressing a news conference in national capital New Delhi, BJP chief Nitin Gadkari said the appeal for President's rule in Karnataka by Bhardwaj is a political conspiracy of the Congress.

 

"The Karnataka Governor sent a letter to the federal government, appealing for President's rule in the state after dismissing our government. It is his undemocratic and unconstitutional mistake. I believe that this letter came because of some UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government in Delhi and Congress leaders who got to know that they cannot defeat BJP government in Karnataka (that was elected) by the public," he said.

 

Gadkari recommended Bhardwaj serve the Congress party as one of its workers in Delhi, as he was 'very experienced' in political matters.

 

"The Governor Sahib is very experienced and Sonia Gandhi can take benefit of his experience to sort out her political matters. If he would work as AICC's (All India Congress Committee) special invitee by leaving his post as governor, then it would be more beneficial for the BJP. So if he would be removed from governor's post and invite him here to work as Congress party's worker, then it would be good," said Gadkari.

 

The Supreme Court had rejected the decision of Karnataka Assembly Speaker K. G. Bopaiah to disqualify dissenting legislators on the eve of a confidence vote earlier, allegedly to 'save' the state-ruling government headed by B. S. Yeddyurappa.

 

Strongly condemning Bopaiah's action, the court had said the disqualification seemed to have been undertaken in haste without giving the legislators enough time to explain, hinting that he had acted in a partisan manner.

 

The 16 legislators, 11 of whom belonged to the provincial ruling BJP, were disqualified on the basis of a complaint filed by Yeddyurappa on October 7, 2010. The disqualification came on the eve of the BJP government seeking a trust vote.

 

The legislators had written identical letters to Bhardwaj on October 6, 2010, indicating that though they had been elected on BJP tickets, they had become 'disillusioned' with the functioning of the government headed by Yeddyurappa.

 

Ten of the disqualified legislators had joined back the state government on Sunday (May 15) evening after pledging their support to Yeddyurappa making the government a majority again.

 

The BJP is confident that the government will be safe.
