Bangalore, Mar 14 (UNI) The BJP in Karnataka will approach the Supreme Court against the possible move by the UPA government to get the assembly elections postponed beyond May, former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa said today.

Speaking to newspersons here he alleged that fearing a drubbing at the hustings, the Congress leaders were working hard to get the elections postponed.

BJP had credible information that Congress was trying to defer the elections as it was ill-prepared to face the people and indulged in arm-twisting the state election machinery to prepare ground for seeking postponement of assembly poll in Karnataka, he alleged.

Mr Yeddyurappa said party leaders would leave for Delhi on March 19 to file a petition before the Supreme Court seeking fulfilment of Constitutional obligations by holding elections within six months of dissolution of the assembly.

Stating that the state election commission has done a 'commendable' job by completing the delimitation and preparation of fresh voter's list in a record time, he accused the Congress leaders of making all-out efforts to scuttle Central Election Commission's plan to conduct timely elections.
