Bangalore, Oct 11 (UNI) Senior Congress leader B Janardhana Poojari today claimed that mid-term polls to Karnataka Assembly was the only solution to end the political impasse in the state.
Talking to newspersons here, he said Governor Rameshwar Thakur had no other option but to recommend dissolution of the Assembly in the present scenario. The Congress was not for cobbling up an arrangement with any political outfit and was ready to face elections, he added.
He alleged that both Bharatiya Jantata Party (BJP) and the Janata Dal (Secular) had betrayed the people. It was unfortunate that the BJP leader went to the people crying that he could not get the Chief Ministership. This was something unheard of in the state's politics so far, he said.
Asked about some of his party leaders making an effort to form an alternative government with the support of JD(S), he ridiculed the idea and said his party supremo Sonia Gandhi was very firm against such ideas.
''Our leaders can try their best. But ultimately they will come to know about the reality,'' he said.
He did not comment on the attempt being made by Union Minister M V Rajasekharan to form a government with the help of JD(S) and merely said Mr Rajasekharan was one of his good friends.
