Resign and go home: BJP's advise to HD Kumaraswamy
Bengaluru : With trust vote process not coming to an end in Karnataka Assembly, Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday advised Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy to 'resign and go' if he has faith in the Constitution and people of the state.
BJP wrote on its Facebook page, "If at all you have faith and respect for the Constitution and the people of the state, you resign and go home."
The BJP ran a hashtag in Kannada, "people of the state will not forgive you."
Kumaraswamy had moved the motion of confidence on Thursday amid several Congress lawmakers resigning, creating survival troubles for the Congress-JDS coalition government.
The BJP claims that the ruling government is deliberately delaying the process to buy time to woo back rebel MLAs, who are allegedly been holed up in Mumbai.
Governor Vajubhai Vala wrote two missives to the chief minister setting deadlines on Friday to conclude the proceedings expressing fear that the delay only gives rise to the scope for horse-trading.
He had also pointed he has "prima facie satisfaction" that the government has lost its majority.
