Bangalore, Oct 7 (UNI) The BJP, in its letter of withdrawal of support to the Janata Dal (S) in Karnataka, submitted to Governor Rameswar Thakur today, described Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy's continuance in office as ''unconstitutional.'' ''Under the present circumstances the Governor should dismiss the Kumaraswamy Government or, if he (Mr Kumaraswamy) was desirous of seeking a vote of confidence in the Assembly, ask him to convene a session within three days, ''former Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said in the letter.

''Allotting a longer time will result in unethical political activities.'' The BJP under the leadership of Mr Yediyurappa had decided to not to be part of a government headed by Mr Kumaraswamy as the JD(S) had failed to transfer power according to the agreement in February 2006, the letter added.

Unfortunately, Mr Kumaraswamy had refused to act in accordance with the agreement and in view of the breach, BJP ministers had decided to tender their resignations from ministership on October two and handed them over to the Chief Minister, the letter added.
