Complimenting the Centre for not accepting Karnataka governor H.R. Bhardwaj’s recommendation on imposing President’s Rule in the state, chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Monday said he would continue to demand the recall of the “partisan” governor. Mr Yeddyurappa also thanked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, home minister P.
Chidambaram and finance minister Pranab Mukherjee for “this appropriate decision to uphold the true democratic decision”.
The BJP, however, accused the Centre of playing a “big brother” role by sending an advisory to the Karnataka government taking the governor’s report into consideration. The party also said that it would continue with its demand of Mr Bhardwaj’s recall.
Mr Bhardwaj, meanwhile, also gave his consent to the convening of the Assembly Session from June 2 after the Centre rejected his recommendation Sunday night. Asian Age
