Cong turns B’lore red, while BJP set to paint Delhi saffron


Karnataka is on a boil with the prevailing tension between the Governor and the Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa. The spat has gone to the next level making it more action packed and dramatic like never before. Tuesday saw Bangalore caught up in a string of traffic snarls due to an agitation by the Congress in a "rasta roko" campaign that saw many of local Congress leaders getting arrested. Those who courted arrest includes Dr G Parameshwar, President of KPCC; Siddaramaiah, Opposition leader of Karnataka Assembly; Dinesh Gundu Rao and Krishna Bhyre Gowda, both Youth Congress leaders.

Traffic was brought to a standstill in four major highways and other high-traffic areas of Silk Board junction, Madiwala, Kogilu cross on Airport road, Guraguntepalya on Tumkur road and Rajarajeshwarinagar gate on Mysore road.

The BJP is steaming full force ahead with the new found confidence and support of 121 MLA"s who have promised their support to the Yeddyurappa government. With 114 of them presently in New Delhi all geared up to march to the President"s office in a show of strength at 5:30pm, there are six others who were not able to make it due to personal reasons.

With the Centre still undecided on what to make of the Governor"s report that sought to impose President"s rule in the state, there were indications that the Centre might not act upon the Governor"s recommendation. The man who ignited the controversy, Governor HR Bharadwaj is facing a lot of heat from various quarters over allegations that he was acting like a Congress representative and was unconstitutional in exercising his duties.

All set to have a show-down in Delhi, Yeddyurappa has been quoted as saying that he was thankful to Bharadwaj for uniting the BJP. The Congress leaders in Karnataka is standing forthright by the Governor"s stand saying that the existing BJP government was illegal and had no moral right to be in office.

In the midst of the commotion, the man caught in the eye of the storm, Governor HR Bharadwaj is celebrating his 74th birthday today. Is the 'Villain of peace" for the BJP mulling his next move to oust Yeddyurappa from his post and wipe out BJP from Karnataka?
