‘JDS may back Cong if it moves no confidence’
Shimoga: Janata Dal (Secular) Friday said it would consider supporting Congress if the party moves a no confidence motion against BJP government in the Karnataka Assembly.
Speaking at a function in Theerthahalli near here, JDS state unit president H D Kumaraswamy said, "We will consider supporting Congress if the party moves a no confidence motion against the BJP in the Assembly."
Kumaraswamy said people of the state "were disgusted with the BJP and would be happy to see its end."
He termed Speaker K G Bopaiah`s "continued inaccessibility" to allegedly help the ruling party as a "black mark to the democratic system".
"The ruling BJP is set to de-value the office of Speaker in the state. When Shettar was the Speaker, the party forced him to accept the resignation of members in the guise of adopting `Operation Kamala`. Now, it is banking on present Speaker to save its skin," he said.
