Karnataka CM-Governor spat to shudder Delhi soon

BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Jan 21: The gulf between Karnataka CM BS Yeddyurappa and Governor H R Bhardwaj seems to be widen day by day and now the jittery soon will reach New Delhi.

Yeddyurappa informed that he will write a letter to the President Pratibha Patil and he will also move to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh seeking the Governor's recall.

The row between the CM and the governor escalated when the Governor received a letter from the CM saying Bhardwaj's accepting the petition filed by two lawyers to prosecute him (Yeddyurappa) for the alleged multi-crore scam as a ''farce and colourable exercise."

In reply, Bhardwaj infront of media called Yeddyurappa a thief as stating, "Ulta chor kotwal ko daante (English equivalent: Pot calling the kettle black).''

Bhardwaj claimed that as the state's top constitutional officer, he has the right to listen to people's complaints.

Expressing grief over the governor's comment, Yeddyurappa asserted, "The governor's political affiliation and intention is to embarrass my government."

Now, Yeddyurappa is expected to meet the prime minister on Monday, Jan 24.

However, the governor had said that he was studying the request of the letter sent by the CM BS Yeddyurappa.
