Hubli, Feb 20 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party National General Secretary Anantkumar today accused the UPA government of being instrumental in murdering democracy by delaying the President's assent for delimitation of constituencies.
Talking to newsmen here, he said though the notification for delimitation of constituencies was ready in November 2007, the UPA government delayed in getting the President's assent by three months with single motive of postponing elections in Karnataka. To a question, he said that the people of Karnataka were ready for elections in May this year but fearing that BJP might come to power whole exercise has been delayed.
To another question, he said his party would raise the issues of Classical language status to Kannada, jobs for Kannadigas, border dispute and terrorism in the state during the forthcoming parliament session scheduled to begin from February 25.
He said second political polarization has began in the state against the Congress with leaders like Basavaraj Bommai, MLC, joining BJP. The first polarization commenced when Ramesh Jigajinagi, P C Gaddigoudar and K B Shanappa joined BJP a few years back. UNI MNP MSP SKB1644
