Bengaluru: Former chief minister and Congress Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah said Karnataka has become “an experimental lab of the BJP.”

Siddaramaiah said in his tweet, “Karnataka assembly has become an experimental lab for Karnataka BJP and the BJP backed governor to try unconstitutional ways to form government. In what article of the constitution is the governor allowed to permit the party to form govt that doesn’t have majority? It is shame!!”, he said.

He said the BJP has a strength of 105 which is way less than the half way mark.

“In no way BJP can form the government if constitution is followed,” he said adding, this only proved that BJP has no belief in the democratic values.

In another message tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party national president Amit Shah, the Congress said, “Parliamentary democracy is being butchered in Karnataka. How can Yeddyurappa stake claim to form the government when they don’t have the numbers? How can the Governor who is the safe keeper of the constitution give his consent ? Where is the Rule of LAW!”

Echoing similar sentiments, JD(S) tweeted, “The strength of the house is 222 (after disqualification of three MLAs) and the half-way mark is 112. However, BS Yeddiurappa approached the governor saying that he has 105 MLAs with him.

The party said the Governor’s decision to permit Yeddurappa to take oath without raising any doubt was anti-democratic.

Yeddyurappa’s sudden move came a day after speaker K R Ramesh Kumar disqualified three rebel MLAs R Shankar, RameshJarkiholi and Mahesh Kumathalli, while keeping pending his decision in respect of 14 other lawmakers.
