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