Bengaluru: The BJP has no plans to move a no confidence motion against the coalition government during the monsoon session of legislature commencing on July 12, says state unit president B S Yeddyurappa.
A day after two Congress MLAs quit from the Assembly, the former chief minister told the media: "There is no question of it (moving a no-trust vote). Our legislature party is yet to meet. Based on the political situation, we will take a decision. We never said we will carry out any 'operation' against the Congress or JD(S). We had said some disgruntled (MLAs) may come out." He accused KPCC president, Dinesh Gundurao, of trying to divert the attention of people from differences among his party leaders, by pointing fingers at the BJP for resignation of two MLAs.
On Congress leaders threatening a "reverse operation" against the BJP, he said they were issuing such threats since three months, and dared them to carry out their strategy. "Let them do it. Have we said don't do it? They have been saying this for the last three months, none of us will move. We are all together, 105 BJP MLAs are united," he added.
Mr Yeddyurappa denied making contact with disgruntled legislators of Congress, but said he was aware of "large scale unease" within the ruling coalition which could result in collapse of the government. He, however, said the BJP would explore all constitutional provisions to form a new government in case the coalition government headed by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy collapses.
