Bangalore, Oct 4 (UNI) Sending out a strong signal that the Janata Dal (Secular) is not prepared to transfer power to the BJP, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy today lashed out at the coalition partner for its ''communal credentials.'' Speaking at the party state executive at the palace grounds here, he questioned the BJP's comment of his not keeping his word on transfer of power, asserting they had no moral right to raise such a question as the saffron party had failed to keep its promise made to the Supreme Court on the safety of Babri Masjid.

Stating that he was prepared to go to the people's court, indicating that the party was prepared for Assembly elections, the Chief Minister said he wanted certain clarifications from the BJP on its credentials before transferring power.

Mr Kumaraswamy referred to communal riots in the coastal districts, the recent attack on the house of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's daughter and the burning of a Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation bus, in which two persons were killed, and wanted to ascertain the safety of minorities and Dalits at the hands of the BJP. Those arrested in connection with the incidents were office bearers of the BJP and Sangh Parivar, he noted.
