Governor of Karnataka should resign: Ahmed Patel

New Delhi, May 19: After Karnataka Chief Minister B.S Yeddyurappa announced to resign before the floor test, Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel on Saturday said Judiciary’s timely intervention has saved democracy, adding Governor Vajubhai Vala should step down. 

In a series of tweets, Patel stated ” Historic day! Incredible victory of Indian democracy. Deeply appreciate elected MLAs’ commitment to clean politics and their determined moral stand in public life”.

“Democracy triumphs again. Congratulations to all those who worked hard to save democracy”, he added.

Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa resigned before facing a trust vote in the Karnataka Assembly with numbers stacked against the Bharatiya Janata Party in the newly elected House.

The resignation came two days after he took oath as the 15th Chief Minister of the southern state.

Setting aside Governor Vajubhai Vala’s 15-day period, the bench of Justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde, and Ashok Bhushan on Friday ordered a floor test in the Karnataka assembly.

In the recently held Assembly election in 222 constituencies, the BJP bagged 104 seats, the Congress 78 and the JD-S 37, with the latter two forming a post-poll alliance.

As JD-S state President H.D. Kumaraswamy won from both Channapatna and Ramanagara, the party effectively has 37 votes, including one vote from its Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ally.

A day after the protesting farmers leaders on Delhi’s Singhu border caught a person who confessed to hatching a conspiracy to disrupt the proposed tractor rally on January 26, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait on Saturday alleged that the Centre and the administration are the ones behind such a “conspiracy”.

The farmer leader alleged that a conspiracy has been hatched to kill four of them and create disturbances during their tractor rally. The person was later handed over to the Haryana Police.

Tikait told IANS: “The man caught from the Singhu border’s protest site was a member of the gang. Only the central government and the administration can carry out such acts.”

“The government has been saying that the tractor rally on January 26 will be violent. How do they know that it will be violent?”

“1Our movement has been quite peaceful for the last two months,” the BKU leader added.

“The apprehended man was associated with a 10-member gang. We have handed him over to the police. Which agency will interrogate him is a matter to be seen,” he said.

Tikait said, “The same people were also part of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s programme. It has now been revealed that the government is behind all such acts.”

“Where there is a mob, violence has to be forcefully created and such an action is resorted to by the administration. These gangs have been imparted training, the same people are part of the mob and commit violence. “

“We have nearly 200 volunteers deployed at various borders of Delhi who are monitoring such suspicious people. We want a peaceful protest,” the BKU leader added.
