Yeddyurappa, with his 122 MLAs, reached the national capital at the late evening of Monday, May 16. The Karnataka CM, accompanied by the 122 MLAs, has vowed to hold a parade to President Pratibha Patil over the governor's "unconstitutional demand."
Bharadwaj had sent a report to the central government calling for president rule in Karnataka. Demonstrating tremendous protest over the governor's report, Yeddyurappa, along with his ardent followers, held a dharna outside the Raj Bhawan in Bangalore on Monday. The CM also claimed, "The Governor should explain, because we have absolute majority."
BJP senior leaders, including LK Advani, Arun Jaitley, during their meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday night, voiced for the recall of Bharadwaj.
Advani, soon after their meeting with Manmohan Singh, chided, "We told the PM that Governors recommendation should be rejected," and also added, "PM has told us that the Government will not take any unconstitutional step."
Meanwhile, government sources, on the condition of unanimity, said that UPA government was likely to dismiss the government's report and Yeddyurappa might be permitted to continue his reign in the state.
