New Delhi, Nov 20 (UNI) The Left parties today demanded the dissolution of the Karnataka Assembly to pave way for early elections, saying there was no other way to establish a stable polity in the state.
The CPI(M) and the CPI, while criticising the opportunistic role of the BJP, said the JD(S) had also eroded its credibility.
The CPI(M) Polit Bureau said in a statement here that the events in the state highlighted the utter opportunistic role of the safforn party. ''It threw democratic norms to the winds, creating a drama of dharna before the Governor and parading its MLAs before the President thereby going back on its own earlier demand for dissolution of the Assembly and early elections.'' In any case, the outcome of the sordid developments was that Karnataka had been saved from the danger of a communal party leading a government, the CPI(M) said.
Now no quarter should be given to any attempt to cobble together a government, the Left party said adding that the only solution was to dissolve the House and announce early elections.
CPI National Secretary Shamim Faizi said there was no other way except the dissolution of the Assembly paving way for fresh polls.
''For a stable polity in Karnataka, people should be given an opportunity to choose their representatives once again,'' Mr Faizi added.
