JD-S to file contempt petition against BJP for holding bandh
Bangalore: Assailing the BJP for sponsoring
Saturday’s Karnataka bandh, JD-S said it would file a contempt
petition saying the protest violated the Supreme Court`s order
The bandh called by the ruling BJP went against the apex
court order, former prime minister and JD-S chief HD Deve
Gowda told reporters here.
The bandh call was given by BJP to protest Governor HR
Bhardwaj`s sanction for prosecution of Chief Minister BS
Yeddyurappa in alleged land scams.
Gowda said JD-S would also file a suit to claim damages
from BJP for any loss of public or private property during the
bandh. He said his party would continue its fight against the
Yeddyurappa Government till it resign.
Main opposition Congress also lashed out at the BJP for
sponsoring the state-wide bandh and alleged police force was
used to ensure business establishments down their shutters.
In several places, BJP workers created trouble and
blocked roads defying prohibitory orders imposed by police,
opposition leader Siddaramaiah alleged.
The attitude of the BJP demonstrated its "fascist" nature
and the government should be dismissed forthwith, he said.
