Bangalore, Oct 25: Former Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today strongly criticised senior JD(S) leader M P Prakash's move to form alternate government in the State by joining hands with Congress.
"The efforts by the former Home Minister is a futile exercise and to create confusion among the people", Mr Yediyurappa told newsmen here.
Mr Yediyurappa said that "there is no change in the stand of BJP to go for fresh elections. JD (S) and Congress too should announce their readiness. Formation of a new government with the help of either JD (S) or Congress is ruled out and nobody had approached BJP in this regard." He said that though the mood among the party legislators was that of avoiding the mid-term polls, the party has however, decided to go for elections.
Mr Yediyurappa criticised the action of Governor Rameshwar Thakur in recommending the President rule without giving a chance to BJP for forming the new government.
