Delay in ending central rule irks BJP
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, November 5
Irked over the delay in revocation of President’s rule in Karnataka, the BJP today asked whether the Centre would have delayed the move if the JD (S) was forming the government with the Congress.

“It has been nine days now. Why this delay? Would the government have taken so much time if the JD (S) and the Congress were together?” party general secretary and incharge of Karnataka Yashwant Sinha said while talking to newspersons after meeting US Ambassador David C. Mulford at his residence.

When it was pointed out to him that JD (S) president H.D. Deve Gowda had written a letter listing 12 conditions for his party’s support, Sinha asked whether the letter was addressed to BJP president Rajnath Singh or to the Governor.

“The issue is between two political parties and the Governor figured nowhere in the picture as long as the combination had a majority in the 224-member Assembly,” he added.
