Hubli, Jan 26 (UNI) Senior BJP leader and former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa today accused the Congress leaders of pressing the Centre for delaying the Assembly polls.
Talking to reporters here, he alleged that following intelligence reports that the Congress could win only 50 to 60 seats if the elections were held, Congress leaders were afraid to face the elections immediately.
Mr Yeddyurappa said his party would move the court if the elections were delayed by the Centre.
He urged Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Takur to come out with a white paper on the utilisation of budgetary allocations.
Mr Yeddyurappa wanted the Governor to take a vote on account for three months and said if the period was more than three months, his party would hold agitations in the State.
Replying to a question, he said even now former Minister M P Prakash could join the BJP.
