New Delhi, Oct 3 (UNI) Accusing the BJP and Sangh Parivar of putting hurdles for the coalition government in Karnataka, the Janata Dal (Secular) today said that the Political Affairs Committee of the party would take a final view on the party's future stance on October 5.
JD (S) Secretary General K Danish Ali said the BJP ministers had submitted their resignations to Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy last night, reminding him of the 'coalition dharma', but for 20 months, they chose to remain silent on the onslaughts of the Sangh Parivar organisations, whether it was Datta Peetha agitation or the verbal onslaught of 'Bellary mining mafia' against the Chief Minister as well as JD (S) supremo H D Deve Gowda.
The BJP failed to check its legislators, who wanted the government to tow their line. Many of the BJP leaders, including state BJP chief Sadananda Gowda got arrested in the Datta Peetha agitation, when they should have upheld the contention of the government about the need to preserve and protect the social fabric, he said.
Mr Ali contended that there was no agreement at the party level between the J D (S) and the BJP on sharing the term. The BJP was talking of an agreement that was reached between the JD (S) legislators and not with the J D (S). They have to wait for the party's decision until October 5, he said, reminding that the power transfer in Jammu and Kashmir had taken three months after the due date.
Asked if he was hopeful that the BJP-JD (S) coalition would survive, he replied ''I am hopeful of the survival of Kumaraswamy Government''.
He alleged the attacks on the daughter of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi at Bangalore and torching of two innocent passengers travelling on a Tamil Nadu bus by the Ram Sethu activists had tarnished the image of the Chief Minister and the coalition.
He said it was the BJP ministers, who scuttled the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Bill and many of them were happy to attend the dinners hosted by the BMIC contractor, whose main intention was to loot the excess land acquired under the garb of development and road construction. It was J D (S), which wanted the excess land to be returned to the farmers, he contended.
