Maharashtra Congress protests against Karnataka Governor

Mumbai/Bengaluru: The Congress’ city unit chief Sanjay Nirupam today organised a protest against the May 17 decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa to form the government in neighbouring Karnataka.

The three-day-old BJP government in Karnataka had collapsed today, minutes before the scheduled trust vote, with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa resigning.

Among those who attended today’s protest was state Congress president Ashok Chavan.

“There are three states, Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya, where the Congress emerged as the single largest party after Assembly polls there. In these states, the Congress wasnt invited to form the government. But the BJP and RSS-biased Governor invited the post-poll alliance of BJP to form a government,” he said.

He said that the BJP had the largest number of seats in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly but only the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) alliance had the numbers to form the government.

“Why is the BJP not accepting its defeat? Why are they twisting and turning the Constitution of India and murdering our democracy,” he questioned.
