Bangalore: Intensifying its attack on Governor H R Bhardwaj, legislators of the ruling BJP in Karnataka on Monday decided to stage a demonstration before Raj Bhavan here tomorrow seeking his recall.

The protest is to give vent to the ire of the BJP against Bhardwaj for giving sanction to prosecute Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on allegations of corruption, party sources said.

BJP will hold its legislature party meeting at a hotel located near Raj Bhavan in the morning and later stage the protest, they said.

A BJP delegation called on President Pratibha Patil and demanded Bhardwaj's recall accusing him of acting in a partisan manner.

Bhardwaj on January 21 gave his sanction for prosecution of Yeddyurappa on petitions by two lawyers, an action that aggravated the hostility between the governor and the ruling party.
