Mangaluru: The Dakshina Kannada district unit of Bharatiya Janata Party staged a massive protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office, demanding the resignation of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy claiming that he had no moral right to continue as the chief minister citing that the government had been reduced to a minority in the Assembly after the resignation of the MLAs.
Addressing the protesters, former MLC Captain Ganesh Karnik said that though people had given a clear mandate to BJP to form the government, both Congress and Janata Dal (S) joined hands to keep BJP away from the power. "Due to this, BJP stood as the opposition party. However, due to the misunderstandings between the two party leaders, the government was not able to concentrate on providing good governance. When their misunderstandings increased, some of the MLAs and ministers resigned and government reduced to a minority now. Hence, H D Kumaraswamy should resign immediately and allow democracy to survive”, he said.
Former MLA N Yogish Bhat alleged that hunger for power made both JDS and Congress to come together to form the government. “The leaders of both the parties were indulged in a cold war soon after the government was formed. But, when the disgruntled MLAs opted for a mass resignation, the ruling party leaders are alleging that BJP is trying to topple the government. There is no role of BJP in toppling the government. As the coalition government has lost majority, Chief Minister Kumaraswamy should resign immediately”, he stressed.
The members of district BJP gathered in large numbers in the protest and raised slogans against the coalition government.
