After the governor HR Bharadwaj requested the Central government to impose presidential rule in Karnataka, Yeddyurappa, as he had declared earlier, started dharna outside the Raj Bhawan in Bangalore on Monday.
The CM, hurling his attack on the governor, stated, "As former law minister, the Governor should know procedures...He should have said - before session you prove your majority on floor of the House."
The CM has also written a letter to the President, Prime Minister and Home Minister saying there is a stable majority government in the state as the 11 BJP rebels including 5 independent announced to support Yeddyurappa government unconditionally. The BJP also decided to parade all 127 of its MLAs before Bharadwaj.
Bharadwaj earlier claimed, " I will not let anyone play smart with me." However, now all eyes will be on the stern governor and the center's decision. It will be interesting to see whether "politically motivated" Bharadwaj will crouch to agitating Yeddyurappa or he will continue his fuss with the CM.
