Mid-term poll only alternative in Karnataka: Congress
Mysore, Nov 4 (UNI) Former Deputy Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah today said considering the present political scenario in Karnataka, the mid-term Assembly poll would be the ideal alternative in the state.
Speaking to newspersons here he said both the Bharatiya Janata Party and Janata Dal(S) were trying to form the Government in the State, but their attempts would become futile.
Mr Siddaramaiah said following the President's rule in the State, assembly has been kept under suspended animation. Alternative Government means different parties should join together, but the BJP and JD(S) cannot form a Government, as they were already separated when the Government collapsed following the withdrawal of support by the BJP and the subsequent resignation of the Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, he added.
He said the Congress party had been urging the Governor Rameshswar Thakur to take appropriate action as per the Constitution of the country.
Former minister R V Deshpande, speaking to newspersons separately said since the coalition Government formed by the JD(S) and BJP had collapsed, it would be impossible for them to provide a stable Government again, as they already started washing their dirty-linen in public.
