State's political instability a concern: Guv

Governor H R Bhardwaj said on Monday that political instability in Karnataka had badly affected governance.

Addressing reporters here, he said people were aware of the outcome of the imposition of President’s rule during S R Bommai’s term as chief minister in 1994.

“Some of my decisions during Yeddyurappa’s tenure evoked controversies. So I am not willing to create such a situation again,” he said.

He added that an amendment to the Cow Slaughter Bill introduced during Yeddyurappa’s rule had been forwarded to the President who had rejected it.

“The government has again approved the same during the Winter Session of the Assembly at Belgaum recently and has submitted it to me again for assent, which is being studied,” he said.

On the matter of the alleged illegal assets owned by deputy Chief Minister K S Eshwarappa, he said there were a lot of documents related to it. “The papers will be forwarded to the chief minister for his advice,” he said.

He also called upon the people of Karnataka to be extra cautious when voting in the forthcoming election.
