New Delhi, Oct 8 (UNI) The BJP today said mid-term polls were the only alternative in Karnataka after the Congress had made its intention clear that it would not extend support to the H D Kumaraswamy government in the state.
BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said the convening of the Assembly would be in order when there was an element of doubt about the numbers. When BJP and Congress have made it clear to the Governor that they will not support the Janata Dal (Secular) government where is the need for the session, he asked.
''You will find the Chief Minister tendering his resignation by this evening, and if he doesn't the government should be dismissed forthwith,'' he added.
Asked about Mr Gowda's statement that talks with BJP in-charge of Karnataka affairs Yashwant Sinha had failed because he had sought JD(S) support for Mr L K Advani's prime ministership and not for making Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, the Chief Minister of the state, Mr Javadekar said there was no need for the BJP to make any comments on the JD(S) chief's statement. Mr Gowda's credibility was at the lowest, he claimed.
