Bangalore, Nov 17 (UNI) Charging the BJP government with betraying the people after coming to power, former Karnataka Chief Minister and JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy demanded that Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa quit office if he was unable to solve the power crisis in the state.
Addressing a party workers convention in which, he took over the reins as the new state president of the party, Mr Kumaraswamy alleged that all development works initiated during his regime had come to a grinding halt during the present BJP government in the state.
Criticising the government for mishandling the power crisis which has forced people to live in virtual darkness, Mr Kumaraswamy cautioned that people might revolt against the misrule and throw the BJP government out of office.
Blaming the BJP government for failing to generate financial resources even to release pension money for specially-abled, old-aged and widows, he said the BJP government, which had betrayed the people after coming to power, had lost moral right to continue in office.
Stating that the Yeddyurappa government had not done anything except 'Transfer business', he pointed out that nearly 9,000 officers were shifted within six months of coming to power.
''This is a government bereft of all moral values,'' he said.
Mr Kumaraswamy vowed to strengthen the party and build it as a strong alternative to both Congress and BJP in Karnataka.
