KPCC moves EC to derecognise BJP for calling bandh

BJP had violated its undertaking as per 29-A (5) proviso of Representation of the People Act in calling for the bandh and was liable to be derecognised or deregistered in the state, Chairman of the Legal and Human Rights wing of the state Congress C M Dhananjaya told a press conference here.

The state-wide Bandh called by the BJP to protest Governor H R Bhardwaj's sanction to prosecute Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on charges of corruption has caused lot of hardship to people and also loss to the exchequer, he said in the complaint.

He also cited a Kerala High Court order which had said complaints seeking derecognition of parties that call for bandh or hartal can be made to the Election Commission.
