Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala should resign: Sharad Pawar


NCP chief Sharad Pawar said on Sturday that Karnakata Governor Vajubhai Vala should resign after the three-day-old B S Yeddyurappa government in the state collapsed just before a crucial trust vote in the assembly. Pawar said Vala's actions have damaged democracy.

Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today resigned instead of facing the scheduled trust vote in the Karnataka assembly. The trust vote was ordered by the Supreme Court on a petition filed by the Congress and JD(S) challenging Governor Vala's decision inviting the BJP to form the government in the state.

"I congratulate Congress and JD(S) MLAs for not falling prey to allurements. The BJP should not have made haste to make Yeddyurappa chief minister when it did not have a (clear) majority," Pawar told reporters in Mumbai.

BJP's decision to make Yeddyurappa chief minister was a "blow to democracy", he said.
