Bangalore, Feb 9 (UNI) Former Karnataka chief minister and BJP Leader B S Yeddyurappa today alleged that Governor Rameshwar Thakur was acting at the behest of Congress leaders.
Admitting JD(U) Leader Basavaraj Bommai into the party here, Mr Yeddyurappa expressed his anguish over the Governor's failure to invite him to centenary celebrations of Kengal Hanumanthaiah, the architect of Vidhana Soudha, organised by the state.
''While all other former chief ministers were invited to attend the function, I was ignored intentionally,'' Mr Yeddyurappa said.
He said the BJP would launch a statewide agitation if Mr Thakur continued to act in a discriminate manner.
Accusing the Congress of trying to defer the Assembly elections fearing defeat, Mr Yeddyurappa opined that the Election Commission could hold the elections on May 28 even after completing the delimitation process.
