Cong seeks Guv's intervention

The Congress has demanded Governor H R Bhardwaj’s intervention in the ongoing political crisis and initiate legal action against Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa who has been facing charges of nepotism and favouritism.

A delegation of the Congress leaders, led by KPCC President G Parameshwara, met the Governor in Bangalore on Monday to submit a memorandum.

The party has listed all allegations recently made against the BJP government and demanded suitable action. It said Yeddyurappa indulged in nepotism, favouritism, misused his office and his family members accepted bribes from many private firms.

The party said that in the interest of state and to uphold high tradition of democracy the Governor should intervene in the matter.

Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah said Yeddyurappa had no moral right to continue in power. He should dissolve the Assembly and seek fresh mandate. “The Congress will launch a statewide protest if Yeddyurappa does not resign,” he said

Parameshwara said administration has collapsed due to the political crisis. There was nobody to listen to the problems of the people. He demanded a CBI probe into all allegations made against the Chief Minister.

“Let the Chief Minister order a CBI probe into denotification and other land-related decisions taken during the previous governments,” Parameshwara said.
