The coalition government partners have expressed their objection against the B.S.Yediyurapa as the new CM of the Karnataka. B.S. Yediyurappa taking oath as CM and said it is 'unconstitutional'. KPCC president Dinesh Gundu Rao and CLP leader Siddaramaiah and also JD(S) leaders have criticized the Governor's decision to allow BJP to form the government.
Congress unit tweeted that “Corruption icon and former jailbird @BSYBJP has used his excellent horse-trading skills to subvert democracy and come to power. People of Karnataka remember his disastrous tenure as CM between 2008 and 2011, which ended with BSY in jail. History is all set to repeat again.”
The coalition government said “The strength of the House is 222 (after the disqualification of three MLAs) and the half-way mark is 112. However, Mr. Yediyurappa approached the Governor saying that he has 105 MLAs with him. The Governor’s decision permitting him to form the government without any second thoughts is anti-democratic.”
While senior Congress leader V.S. Ugrappa said “unconstitutional.” “By allowing him to be sworn in when it is clear that the BJP has no support of 112 MLAs in the House, the Governor has willingly allowed horse-trading of MLAs- the only way how Mr. Yediyurappa can win the trust vote,” he argued.
Meanwhile, JD(S) President HD Deve Gowda said, “There is no problem in (Mr. Yediyurappa) getting sworn in now. But the party will soon have to prove its majority. The Finance bill also has to be tabled by July 3,” he expressed.
