K'taka: Cong calls for early polls
Bangalore, Nov 4: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President Mallikarjuna Kharge today said that it will launch a Janandalon from Nov 5 to create awareness among people that the state has only one option of going for assembly polls in the prevailing political situation.
Mr Kharge told reporters here today that the party would expose the ongoing cold war between JD(S) and BJP over the issue of sharing of power.
He pointed out that on the one side JD(S) national President H D Devegowda was putting conditions to the coalition partner BJP, while on other former Chief Minister H D Kumarswamy described BJP's ongoing pressure on the Governor to invite it to form the government as 'undemocratic.' "We seek the dissolution of the Assembly in the wake of present political developments of accusing each other in the process of forming the new government once again in the state," he said.
He described Mr Gowda as an extra constitutional authority and BJP had become a victim but swallowing its humiliation due to its greed for power.
The campaign would later spread to the districts as well to tell the people about the mal-adminstration of JD(S)-BJP coalition government and seek their support in going for fresh polls.
He said the people were fed up of the JD(S)-BJP alliance and they were of the opinion that fresh elections was the best way out.
