JD-U not happy with BSY continuing as Karnataka CM

"Governor's role is not appropriate...He is violating the dignity of his office and acting in this manner going beyond his limits," JD-U chief Sharad Yadav told reporters here.

Yadav, however, reacted sharply when asked whether he was with Yeddyurappa and said, "I am not with anyone but it is my duty to speak against some thing which is happening against the spirit of the Constitution.

"I had given an advice to BJP... I am concerned with what was happening there," he said when asked about alleged corruption in land allotments in the state.Yadav, however, refused to reply to a specific query on whether he had advised BJP to seek Yeddyurappa's resignation.

"I have spoken whatever I had to on the issue," he said, asking what more could be spoken about an ally before the media.

Party sources said the JD-U wanted BJP to ensure that Yeddyurappa stepped down from his office as his continuance in as Chief Minister would "weaken the opposition's campaign against corruption."
Yadav's comments came on a day when BJP marched to the Rashtrapati Bhawan and complained to President Pratibha Patil that he was "acting as a Congress activist" and sought his recall.

The chief minister, who came here for consultations with central party leaders yesterday, was however not part of the BJP team that met Patil as he left for Bangalore where fresh trouble awaited him in the form of three new corruptions complaints being registered against his kin.
