MB Patil says BJP needs unachievable 15 wickets to form the government
Home Minster MB Patil taunted at advising that the coalition would collapse, and the BJP would spread a new government, expressing the saffron party required 'at least 15 wickets' to form the government, a number they 'can not achieve ever.'
MB Patil claimed the BJP of the attempt the previous year but stated it failed any of its many self-imposed deadlines. He stated that while “two or three troubled MLAs” may fall into the lure the Operation Lotus, it is not enough for the BJP to initiate the government. Reacting to Anand Singh’s claims that the decision to allot land to JSW to Steel in Ballari was the trigger for his quitting, Patil said it was false.
MB Patil said, “I am the chairman of the Cabinet sub-committee formed to conduct an inquiry into the allotment of land to JSW Steel and I received a letter from Anand Singh only on Monday about the issue.”
Patil said the subcommittee leaders such as HK Patil and Priyanka Kharge and that it will hold a fair investigation before submitting a report to the Cabinet. As for Anand Singh’s resignation, Patil suggested that it would not be accepted by the Speaker earlier.
“There are many procedures to be followed,” he said, “First, MLAs must submit their resignations to the speaker in person. The speaker then issues notices and holds an inquiry to see if the MLAs have resigned under pressure, are of sound mind, etc. Resignations will be accepted only after all the procedures are completed.”
Patil insisted the government will complete its tenure. “Nobody needs to have any doubt the stability of this government,” Patil said, insisting he would talk to Ramesh Jarkiholi and attempt to bring him back to the fold.
