Bangalore, Nov 8: Stating that 'opportunistic alliance' between Bharatiya Janata Party and Janata Dal (Secular) will not ensure stable government in the state, Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President Mallikarjuna Kharge iterated his party's demand for fresh election. Reacting to the centre's decision to revoke President's rule and pave way for BJP and JD(S) combine to form next alternate government in the state, he said that considering the dwindling of numbers of legislators every day for the alliance between BJP and JD(S) "There will not be a stable government in Karnataka".
He pointed out that when the re-aligned BJP and JD(S) met the Governor Rameshwar Thakur to stake claim, the number legislators who supported the move was 129. This got reduced to 124 when they met President Pratibha Patil at New Delhi. It might plunge further before getting invitation from Governor for the alliance to form government. Dissolution of the house was the only way to end political uncertainty in Karnataka, he felt.
Mr Kharge said the centre's decision rule was unexpected for Congress and said the 'opportunistic alliance' would not last long.
Both BJP and JD(S) came together after parting ways only for the sake of power and not for the welfare of the people of the state, he criticised.
