BSY to prove majority to Prez with MLA parade

BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore/New Delhi, Oct 12: In a final bid to save his government from falling, the Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa will on Tuesday, Oct 12 fly to the national capital, where he plans on parading all 105 MLAs before the President, Pratibha Patil.

With the parade, the Chief Minister hopes to convince the President against the Karnataka Governor, HR Bharadwaj's recommendation of invoking President's rule in the state.

Announcing the parade plan on Monday, Oct 12 hours after the controversial trust vote, state unit President K S Eshwarappa said, "We will parade all our 105 MLAs before the President and also demand that she reject the recommendation given by the Governor."

He accused the Governor of acting as "a Congress agent" and engaging in "conspiratorial politics".

"Since the time he took over as the Governor of Karnataka, he has not been behaving in the manner that befits the holy post but has been acting like a Congress agent...," he charged while speaking to media personnel.

The fate of the state will be decided on Tuesday, Oct 12 as the Centre awaits Karnataka High Court's word on the two petitions filed by the 16 disqualified dissident MLAs, who have accused the Assembly Speaker KG Bopaiah of siding with the BS Yeddyurappa-led BJP government.

While the Cabinet is scheduled to meet at 4:30, BJP core group will be meeting at 11 am to take stock of the situation in the state.
