Left parties not keen on President's rule in State

In a breakfast meeting convened by former Prime Minister, Left leaders said they had no objection to the BJP continuing in power in Karnataka but wanted the Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and speaker K G Bopaiah to quit in the light of the Supreme Court verdict.
However when asked whether the parties backed the demand for the imposition of President’s rule in Karnataka, CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan said “let both resign first , after that we shall sit and discuss rest of the issue.  “If the BJP wants to continue with the government, let them elect a new speaker, new CM. We have no objection to that. But these two gentlemen have no right to continue after SC judgement. A clear indictment is there," Bardhan said.


The meeting was attended by former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, CPM General Secretary Prakash Karat, CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury, Bardhan, CPI Rajya Sabha member D Raja, RLD chief Ajit Singh, Forward Bloc leader Debabrata Biswas and JD(S) leader Kunwar Danish Ali.
