Haveri, Oct 15 (UNI) Former Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today demanded dissolution of the State Assembly to enable early mid-term polls.
Speaking at a press conference here, Mr Yediyurappa said the BJP had decided to seek fresh mandate and wondered whether the Congress and the JD(S) had a heart to face early polls.
He ridiculed former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy seeking apology from the people for not transferring power to the BJP.
''This is nothing but a drama and it is a shame on the part of Mr Kumaraswamy,'' Mr Yediyurappa said.
He said that as a Finance Minister, he had presented two good budgets and spent 'all his time' doing pro-people work.
'Irked' by his two pro-people and pro-farmers' budget, JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda had betrayed the BJP by not transferring power as per the agreement, he alleged.
