Deve Gowda questions CJ's order in rebel MLA case
Former Prime Minister of India, H D Deve Gowda has cast aspersions on the order of the Chief Justice of Karnataka with regard to the order passed by him in the case pertaining to the 11 rebel BJP MLAs. Addressing media persons in Bangalore he questioned the order of the Chief Justice which had upheld the order of the speaker of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly in which 11 rebel BJP MLAs were disqualified.
Gowda said that the Chief Justice should introspect in this regard. This is the second allegation being made against the Chief Justice in the past three days. On Monday another MLA, Vishwanath too had made a similar allegation against the Chief Justice. These allegations come in the wake of the Chief Justice sharing the dais with Chief Minister, B S Yeddyurappa at the Mysore Dusshera celebrations that were held last week.
Gowda also accused both the Congress and the BJP in Karnataka of making attempts to finish off regional parties. He said that desperate attempts were being made to wipe out regional parties from Karnataka and other parts and such things ought to stop immediately.
Meanwhile the Congress in Karnataka has launched a second round of protest against the ruling BJP. The Congress leaders have been protesting the horse trading of their MLAs by the BJP.
