Bengaluru, Feb 6 : Opposition leader in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly B S Yeddyurappa, who is also BJP State President, today said that "we are boycotting the Governor’s address to the Joints House as the Congress-JDS Coalition Government has no moral right to continue in power as it has lost majority".
Talking to newsmen after staging dharna in the well of the house during Governor's address, he said that "this government has totally failed to deliver. Law and Order has been totally collapsed, people are suffering due to severe drought condition prevailing in more than 150 Taluks in the State and corruption, especially in Transfers, has became rampant."
Mr Yeddyurappa alleged that more than 20 MLAs of Coalition parties were absent in the House and day in and day out Congress legislators are stating that Mr Siddaramaiah as the Chief Minister of the State. "People have lost faith in this government headed by Mr Kumaraswamy whose party has only 37 legislators.
"Even Mr Kumaraswamy himself, several times, has expressed inability to perform his duties as Chief Minister due to pressure and torture from Congress Legislators," he added.
Replying to a question, Mr Yeddyurappa clarified that "BJP will not meet the Governor nor move no confidence motion against this government as this government's lack of majority will be made known during presentation of Budget for 2019-20 on Feb 8." (UNI)
