Bidadi, Nov 7: The Congress Party in Karnataka claimed that corruption is the main cause of political instability in the state. The BJP government has been hit with a large number of corruption cases.

After a meeting with the senior party leaders including External Affairs Minister SM Krishna and Minister of State for Railways, KH Muniyappa, the president of KPCC, G Parameshwara said, "Political instability is written on the wall with the BJP government facing a barrage of charges of corruption, misrule and misadministration."

He commented that former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, who formed the first south Indian BJP government in 2008 and his ministerial colleagues were in jails. He added that even some of the ministers in the DV Sadananda Gowda cabinet are charged with corruption cases.

The Congress meeting discussed about the preparedness and ways to strengthen the party for the coming mid-term polls.

"The unanimous opinion of the party leaders was that we must sort out our internal differences, prepare ourselves and work unitedly to face the challenge of a possible mid-term polls, in the wake of political instability in the state," said Parameshwara.

Parameshwara criticised BJP leader LK Advani's "Jana Chethana Yatra" calling it as an "utter failure that has exposed divisions within the party in the state". He also pointed out that Yeddyurappa's supporters did not take part in the Yatra.
