Bhardwaj `hell bent` on toppling Yeddyurappa govt: Swamy
Chennai: Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday alleged that Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj was "hell bent" on getting the Yeddyurappa government removed by "hook or crook".
"The defiling of the Constitution by the Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj has attained the deplorable state it reached during the 1975-77 Emergency," Swamy said in a statement here.
The Janata Party leader also hoped that the Congress Party "dare not precipitate an election in Karnataka which Yeddyurappa will win by a thumping two-third majority of Assembly seats," and demanded that the Prime Minister stopped "this debasement of the Constitution”.
Bhardwaj had yesterday recommended the Centre to impose President`s rule on the state following the Supreme Court judgement of reversing the Karnataka High Court decision of disqualifying 11 BJP rebel MLAs and five independents ahead of the October 10, 2010 floor test in the Assembly.
