We do not need sermons from Congress on Constitution: BJP

We do not need sermons from Congress on Constitution: BJP

New Delhi, May 16 (UNI) Lashing out at the Congress, the BJP said on Wednesday that they don't need any sermons from a party which blew up the Constitution to shambles.

Addressing a press conference here at the party headquarters, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, 'The party which imposed President's rule the most in the country and undermined democracy by money and improper conduct, is giving us lessons on decency today.'

Mr Prasad said the Supreme Court has categorically stated that in the situation arising on the basis of the new election, who the Governor invites to form the government, 'we (Supreme Court) will not give any views'. The Court has clearly stated that the platform of the Vidhan Sabha is the only place where the majority is to be tested, the BJP leader added.

Explaining the technicalities of Sarkaria Commission and M M Punchhi Commission, Mr Prasad said, 'People's goodwill, people's votes are with the BJP. The Congress party is trying to rob the mandate.

'In Karnataka, we'll run a majority government and run with the blessing of the public.'

He said the president and governors have the right to take a decision but it should not be an arbitrary one. 'The Governor has invited Mr Y S Yeddyurappa to form the government which is according to the rules of Constitution and the Supreme Court.'

'Their Chief Minister Siddaramaiah lost from one place and won marginally from another . Congress' 16 ministers lost in the elections. Where is the mandate,' Mr Prasad asked.

People gave the mandate to the BJP although the Congress played divisive and communal politics, he said.

He said the Congress was levelling baseless charges when asked about MLAs being involved in horse trading.

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala on Wednesday night invited BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa to take oath as the 23rd Chief Minister of Karnataka at a function to be held at Raj Bhavan in Bangalore at 0900 hrs on Thursday and he has been given 5 days time to prove the majority.

The Governor's decision to invite BJP to form the government came as a shock for Janata Dal (S) and Congress parties which had joined together to form a coalition government with the total support of 117 legislators.

Assembly elections which was held for 222 seats on May 12 witnessed a fractured mandate with BJP securing 104 seats followed by Congress 78, Janata Dal (S) 37, BSP 1 and Independents 2. The counting was taken up yesterday.

Though BJP had won only 104 against the simple majority of 111 seats as JD(S) chief ministerial candidate H D Kumaraswamy had contested on two constituencies, the Governor invited the BJP as it was the single largest party.
