Bangalore: Opposition Congress in Karnataka on Friday urged Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda to initiate action on the recommendations of the Lokayukta report on illegal mining which indicted his predecessor BS Yeddyurappa
and four former ministers.
A meeting of the KPCC office-bearers chaired by its
President G Parameshwara resolved to demand that the Chief
Minister immediately act on the Lokayukta report whose
indictment led to Yeddyurappa`s exit.
Parameshwara told reporters that the events that unfolded
yesterday during the swearing-in ceremony of Gowda clearly
pointed towards the fact that the ruling BJP was a divided
house in the state.
"Karnataka now has three opposition parties-- Cong, JD(S)
and BJP rebel group. Let Sadananda Gowda clarify whether he
will be chief minister for the remaining two years term or
last only for six months, as his predecessor Yeddyurappa has
already announced his return to power", he said.
