Bangalore, Nov 8 (UNI) Claiming that the 'opportunistic alliance' between the BJP and the Janata Dal (Secular) would not ensure a stable government in Karnataka, Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Mallikarjuna Kharge reiterated his party's demand for fresh election.
Reacting to the Centre's decision to revoke President's Rule and pave way for the BJP and JD(S) combine to form a government in the state, he told UNI considering the dwindling numbers of MLAs for the alliance, ''there will not be a stable government in the state''.
He claimed that when the re-aligned coalition parties met Governor Rameshwar Thakur to stake claim, the number of MLAs who supported the move was 129. This was reduced to 124 when they met President Pratibha Patil in New Delhi.
It might plunge further before getting invitation from the Governor for the government formation. Dissolution of the House was the ''only way'' to end the prevailing political uncertainty, he said.
