New Delhi: Hitting out at BJP over the B S
Yeddyurappa controversy in Karnataka, Congress on Monday said the
"comedy, tragedy and farce" in the southern state was
affecting the nation as the governance there was all about
"corruption, loot and personal ambition."
Describing the tussle for Chief Ministership in Karnataka
as "internal matter" of BJP, party spokesperson Abhishek
Singhvi said, "The affairs in Karnataka BJP government reflect
a tragedy, comedy and farce."
Alleging that BJP in Karnataka was engaged only in
corruption, personal ambition and sharing loot, the Congress
spokesperson said that BJP is "not only faction ridden or
faction riven" but engaged in "game of loot".
The Congress reaction on the Karnatka BJP affairs came on
a day, when amid mounting pressure on BJP leadership for
reinstating him as Karnataka Chief Minister, Yeddyurappa
today fielded a rebel candidate for Rajya Sabha polls even as
party chief Nitin Gadkari said an "appropriate" decision on
his demand will be taken soon.
Karnataka Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda meanwhile
rejected Yeddyurappa camp`s demand yesterday for convening a
legislature party meeting within 48 hours, saying it would be
called only after presentation of the budget which he is due
to unveil on Wednesday. The budget session of the state
Assembly commences tomorrow.
BJP has a strength of 120 legislators, including the
Speaker, in the 224-member Assembly.
In the face of the fresh crisis facing BJP, Gadkari said
no decision would be made under pressure and asked Yeddyurappa
to have patience.
