Bangalore, Jun 6: Slamming the Centre for its crackdown on Yoga guru Baba Ramdev's agitation against corruption, the BJP government in Karnataka has decided to pass a resolution in the state Assembly condemning the government action.

"A resolution condemning the Government action against Baba Ramdev (will be passed)", Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa told reporters here.

Yeddyurappa termed the eviction of Ramdev and police action on the gathering at Ramlila grounds as "anti-democratic".

Yeddyurappa also set himself a three-month deadline for giving his government a makeover following concern expressed by senior BJP leader L K Advani over the dent in the party's image in Karnataka following a spate of allegations against it.

"I have decided to refurbish the image of my government and also the party by implementing various measures within three months", Yeddyurappa said when his attention was drawn to the comments by his party's veteran leader.

Advani had said yesterday that he was "not happy with what is happening" in Karnataka following corruption charges against the ruling BJP, especially in relation to the mining sector.
