Rajkot: A group of Congress workers today assembled outside the home of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala here and shouted slogans against him following which 30 of them were detained, the police said.

They were protesting against Valas decision to invite the BJP to form the government in Karnataka despite the saffron partys numbers being less than the combined tally of the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) in the state Assembly.

Congress city unit chief Mahesh Rajput, who led the protest outside Valas Nutan Nagar society residence near Kalavad Road here, called the Karnataka governors act a “blot on democracy” “Despite being the governor of a state, Vala has acted like a BJP worker,” Rajput alleged.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Harshad Mehta said, “We have detained 30 Congress workers from outside the residence of the Karnataka governor. No member of Valas family was at home when the protest and sloganeering took place.”

Protests by the Congress against Valas decision were also held at Ahmedabad and Vadodara.
