Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay
Singh on Thursday described as "unconstitutional" Karnataka Assembly
Speaker`s decision to allow a voice vote instead of division
of votes on October 11.

"It was totally illegal and unconstitutional," he told
reporters here, referring to the BJP government in Karnataka
winning the motion by voice vote.

Singh also said it was wrong on the part of the government
not to allow some people to vote merely because there was an
assumption that they would vote against it.

On the Speaker rejecting Opposition Congress plea today
for postponing the session convened to take up the motion of
confidence by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, he said "it is
the prerogative of the Chair."

About BJP government winning the trust vote today by a
narrow margin, Singh said, "I wish them best of luck."
