Bangalore, Nov 13 (UNI) Leader of Opposition in Karnataka Legislative Assembly N Dharam Singh today sought Chief Minister B S Yeddyurpapa to advance the Assembly session for seeking confidence vote from November 23.
"It is a clear and persisting indication of instability" he told newsmen here pointing out to the postponement of the session for seeking trust vote from November 15 to November 23.
Another factor to indicate that all was not well in the renewed alliance between the BJP and the JD (S) was the absence of JD(S) ministers during the swearing in ceremony. The oath could have been administered to members of both the coalition partners as had been the practice in the past he added.
He also pointed out that the Governor in his report to the center had made a mention about this and it was a serious issue.
Criticising BJP for the way it conducted the oath taking ceremony in front of the Vidhan Soudha yesterday, he said he ceremony had lost its sanctity for turning it into a party function.
"Vidhana Soudha is a property of the state and no party or religion should have its domination over it," he said.
Mr Singh also criticised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his statement that Karnataka will follow Gujarat model and asked whether he meant the repetition of Godhra incident in the state which is communally peaceful.
