Cong to move no-trust motion against BJP govt

Seeking to take advantage of the political instability haunting the ruling BJP in Karnataka, the Opposition Congress has decided to move a no-confidence motion against the Jagadish Shettar government during the winter session of the legislature commencing in Belgaum on December 5.

Congress leader in the Assembly Siddaramaiah, speaking to reporters at Hoovinahadagali, about 160 km from here, said on Thursday that his party had decided to move a no-confidence motion against the BJP government.

He said he was sceptical about Shettar completing the BJP’s remaining tenure in office in the backdrop of fissures in the ruling party with former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa going ahead to form his own political outfit.

Siddaramaiah claimed the two regional parties Karnataka Janata Party and BSR Congress formed by Yeddyurappa and B Sreeramulu, respectively, had no future in the State, as people would not trust regional outfits.

BSR Congress headed by Sreeramulu was funded by money earned from illegal mining barons and former ministers Reddy brothers, he alleged.

Assembly elections are due in the State early next year.
