Bangalore, Feb 27 (UNI) Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Venkaiah Naidu today urged the Election Commission not to succumb to pressure from outside with regard to holding elections to Karnataka Assembly before May 28.
Speaking to newsmen here he said that the elections to the dissolved Karnataka Assembly should be conducted within six months and the CEC should take all measures to fulfill its constitutional obligations on the issue.
He alleged that the Congress was not confident to face the people and was trying to exert pressure on the CEC to ensure postponement of the assembly elections which was 'undemocratic and unconstitutional.' He said his party would resist all such measures both legally and politically.
State BJP President Sadananda Gowda, who was also present, expressed confidence that the elections would be held before May this year. He said the party was well prepared to face the elections.
