Addressing the protest rally, former MLA Jayaram Shetty said that the recommendations of the Governor is supported by the Congress and the JD(S). The Congress and the JD(S) fear that they can not come to power in the future with the gaining popularlity of the Yeddyurappa-led government through its pro-people programmes. The BJP has won 65 per cent of the by elections held in the state in the last two years.

“The Governor is acting on the behest of the Congress, who are eager to topple the first BJP-led government in South India,” he alleged.

Shetty said “Governor is acting as the agent of the Congress. Through his recommendation, he is trying to destabilise the elected government. The Governor’s act was pre-planned as the Governor had visited Delhi to submit the order even before the verdict.”

He urged the Governor to allow the BJP government to complete its term.
He said “if the Assembly is dissolved immediately, then Congress and the JD(S) will not get single seat in the Assembly. Hence, they had asked the Governor to recommend for the dismissal of the state government and impose President’s rule.”

Coastal Development Authority Chairman B Nagaraj Shetty said as a legal expert, Governor must have acted legally. The benefits of the development projects launched by the BJP have reached people at the lowest rungs of the social ladder. Governor has turned out be a ‘Ravana’ and ‘Yama’ for the state government.

The Governor and the Congress can not destabilise the government as we have the support of the people of the State. He called upon the party workers to get ready for a struggle to save the BJP government. If the Central government fails to reject the recommendations, then the BJP will organise protest at the hobli, taluk and village level. 

The protesters urged the immediate recall of the Governor H R Bharadwaj.
BJP President Padmanabha Kottari, former president Monappa Bhandary, ZP President Shailaja and others were present.
