Gulbarga: JDS in Karnataka on Sunday said Chief
Minister BS Yeddyurappa himself was responsible for the
"instability" of the BJP government and not the opposition.

"Chief Minister himself is responsible for the
instability of his government and not the opposition parties,"
JDS state unit president HD Kumaraswamy said while
participating in a function here.

The "instability", he claimed, was caused as Yeddyurappa
did not take into confidence his own party legislators and
ministers, resulting in his "own MLAs rebelling against him".

Sarcastically congratulating the BJP government which
completes three years in office tomorrow, he flayed the
government for allegedly not undertaking any developmental
works during this period. "Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, who
has been harping about development, has not been able to take
up any developmental works so far," Kumaraswamy said.

On JDS carrying out a sustained campaign against the
Chief Minister, he shot back, "should we keep mum when the
Chief Minister is looting the state wealth as per his whims
and fancies".

On BJP leader Sushma Swaraj`s recent remark that she had
"no role in the political making" of Reddy brothers,
Kumaraswamy said, "She is trying to escape from the
forthcoming problems by doing so..realisation has dawned on
her late".

The JDS legislature party will hold its meeting here
tomorrow to discuss its action plan in the coming legislature
session, he added.
