Bangalore, Nov 19 (UNI) BJP in Karnataka decided sacrificed its government Karnataka rather than submit to the unethical demands and blackmail tactics of JD(S), party incharge Yeshwant Sinha said here today.
Speaking to news persons here tonight he alleged that state plunged into a political crisis once again only because of the JD(S) and demanded Governor Rameshwar Thakur to dissolve the assembly and take steps to hold early elections.
Terming it as a 'black day' in the history of Indian Democracy, Mr Sinha accused that JD(S) had dishonor the mandate of the 2004 assembly elections forming government with Congress, which was rejected by people.
"JD(S) has violated that mandate once again within a week's time after withdrawing its support to BJP thereby betrayed the people of Karnataka," he said.
He describing former prime minister H D Deve Gowda's latest 'manovers'' and 'hobnobbing with the Congress', as an yet another example of extreme political opportunism to subvert the mandate of the people.
Explaining the circumstances under which BJP taken decision to accept the JD(S) support he said that its leaders had approached the state BJP leadership on October 27 and complained to them that the Congress party was trying to split their party.
"JD(S) leaders including H D Deve Gowda and his son appealed BJP to form government and said that they will extend an unconditional support to B S Yeddyurappa.
Mr Sinha alleging that JD(S) leaders after agreeing to extend unconditional support to BJP, changed their mind and sent a stamp paper containing 12-point conditions as a pre condition to vote for the confidence motion which was impossible to accept. "A veteran like Mr Gowda insisting on a written agreement that too on a stamp paper was unprecedented in the annuals of Indian political history," he said.
He said JD(SW) promised an unconditional support and affirmed it before both the Governor and then the President Pratibha Patil as it wanted make Mr Kumaraswamy as super chief minister and reduced BJP to a junior partner. "JD(S) leaders also insisted for the allocation of the plum portfolios of Housing and Urban Development and Mines and Geology which B S Yeddyurappa flatly refused to accept," he said.
Mr Sinha informed that party would go before the people and explain the 'treacherous act' of the JD(S) and seek a fresh mandate.
"BJP will emerge victorious and will form government on its own strength" he said.
