Bangalore: Eleven non-UPA, non-NDA political
parties are likely to chalk-out a week-long agitational
programme to protest price rise and highlight corruption
issues, JD-S, a constituent of the group said today.
JD-S would have no representative at the meeting, which
will take place in Delhi tomorrow, as the party has its
national council and plenary session here, but has conveyed to
the CPM leader Prakash Karat that it would fully back the
decision that would be taken, party Secretary General Danish
Ali said here.
"BJP has no moral right to fight corruption," he told
JD-S held the last meeting of its outgoing national
executive today discussing draft socio-political, economic and
Karnataka-specific political resolutions.
Party leaders said former Prime Minister H D Devegowda is
set to be elected as National President unopposed tomorrow, as
16 state units have proposed his name and there are no other
Ali charged the BJP Government in Karnataka with
"destroying the institutions of Legislature and the Speaker",
and now trying to "intimidate the institution of Raj Bhavan",
an apparent reference to today`s state Cabinet resolution
asking the Governor not to permit prosecution of Chief
Minister B S Yeddyurappa over alleged land scams.
The meeting is likely to be attended by CPI(M), CPI, RSP,
Forward Bloc, BJD, AIADMK, RLD, SP and TDP.
