Delhi, Nov 3 (UNI) The BJP has decided to parade its MLAs before President Pratibha Devisingh Patil on Monday, seeking her intervention to revive Karnataka Assembly and install a popular government in the state.
BJP Vice-President Yashwant Sinha, also incharge of the State, said the party would seek time from President, and 129 MLAs would be in the capital by tomorrow night.
After having paraded BJP-Janata Dal(Secular) MLAs before Karnataka Governor Ramashwar Thakur, a delegation of Karnataka MPs led by Leader of the Opposition L K Advani had met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and demanded that a popular government be installed in the state and the Assembly which is suspended since October nine be revived .
The party had reminded Dr Singh that the shifting stands of the political parties cannot be a ground to dissolve the Assembly.
However, the Congress on its part have been drumming up its support with the Congress leadership that the dissolution was the best course available to the Governor because it was the same political party which had failed the transfer of power exactly one month ago and calling the same combination one more time would make no sense.
The letter written by JD (S) Surpemo H D Deve Gowda listing out a dozen demands to the BJP President Rajnath Singh has not gone down well with the BJP which accepted the JD (S) support after it offered 'unconditional' support to the BJP to form the government.
The party is unlikely to give an immediate reply to Mr Gowda and the focus is on putting pressure on the Centre to revive the Karnataka Assembly.
