Bangalore: Former prime minister H D Deve
Gowda on Friday charged Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa
with "throwing decency to winds" in saving his chair and
questioned the attitude of RSS and senior BJP leaders for
"silently watching the dirty political events" in the state.
"The chief minister has stooped to the lowest level to
remain in office and indulged in poaching opposition MLAs
through Operation Lotus which is highly unethical and
unconstitutional," the JD-S national president told reporters.

He suspected that the Congress at the Centre was
"deliberately" letting off the BJP government in Karnataka by
not acting on Governor H R Bhardwaj`s recommendation on the
dismissal of the Yeddyurappa government, and felt that it had
pushed the State Congress leaders into a state of embarrassment.
"The Central Congress leaders seem to be seeing the
state BJP unit as "Congress B team", he said.
