New Delhi, Oct 11: Dubbing the recommendation of Karnataka Governor for imposition of President's Rule in the state as a "pre-written Congress script", BJP today accused Congress of misusing Raj Bhawan for its political interests.
"Karnataka Governor's recommendation of President's Rule is nothing but a pre-written Congress script against the elected government of Karnataka. Congress from the very beginning is misusing the Governor's office for its political purposes and has converted the Raj Bhawan of Karnataka into a Congress Bhawan," BJP Vice-President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told PTI.
The senior BJP leader alleged that the Governor's recommendation is "politically motivated, constitutionally wrong and part of an attempt to destabilise the constitutionally elected government of the state".
Describing Congress as "a professional killer" of constitutional values and democratic norms, Naqvi said "this time what has happened in Karnataka is another heinous crime by the Congress against democracy and the constitution."
Governor H R Bhardwaj is believed to have sent his report to the Centre calling the events and the vote in the Assembly as "unconstitutional" and "farce" and that the state should be brought under President's rule.
He is understood to have noted that Speaker K G Bopiah's action in disqualifying 16 MLAs--11 of BJP and 5 Independents--was unconstitutional and had vitiated the proceedings. PTI
