NEW DELHI: Opposition parties today accused the BJP of “murder of democracy” and “trampling” the Constitution, with the Congress demanding that Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala be recalled as it dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah to prove BJP’s majority in the State tomorrow itself.
Parties like TMC, CPI-M and BSP, besides RJD stood in unison to target the BJP and asserted that if the single largest party was to form the Government, then BJP Governments in states like Bihar, Goa, Manipur and Meghayala should resign.
The Congress also decided to observe tomorrow as ‘Save Democracy Day’ saying party workers across the country will hold protests and dharnas at all district headquarters against Vala’s “illegal” decision to allow BS Yeddyurappa to take over as Chief Minister, “despite being in a minority”.
Stepping up attack on the BJP, Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala dubbed Yeddyurappa as a “one-day Chief Minister” saying he lacked majority and would be ousted soon after the Supreme Court’s hearing and decision on Friday. (AGENCIES)
