Bengaluru: Is the JD(S)-Congress coalition government teetering on the edge? Doubts have arisen about the stability of the government after none other than Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar claimed on Wednesday that the saffron party will soon provide a 'dhamaka'(an explosive event) to usher in a government of its own later this month.
Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Mr. Javadekar said, "the coalition partners are quarrelling with each other and there is no coordination between them." An audio tape hinting at poaching efforts by BJP leaders had gone viral recently. But Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy brushed aside Mr Javadekar's claim remarking that the BJP has been talking about the so called 'explosive event' for the last six months.
Union Minister for Human Resources and Development , Prakash Jawadekar claimed on Wednesday that the BJP would soon be responsible for a 'dhamaka'(an explosive event) as it would establish its own government in the state later this month.
Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Mr. Jawadekar said the people too were expecting the "dhamaka" as BJP state chief, B.S.Yeddyurappa had already talked about it. "The coalition partners in the state government are quarrelling with each other and there is no coordination between them," he alleged.
But strongly reacting to his statement, Chief Minister H.D.Kumaraswamy observed disparagingly that the BJP has been talking about the so called explosive event for the last six months, ever since he had assumed office. "But nothing has happened to the state government," he noted.
Water Resources Minister, D.K. Shivakumar, for his part, accused the BJP of being desperate and observed that it had even admitted to horse trading to destabilise the state government.
"But we will not budge under their (BJP’s) pressure tactics. We have promised the Chief Minister that the Congress will support him to provide a stable government for five years and will stand by this. Now the horse-trading by the BJP has reached Delhi. We are not as intelligent as BJP leaders, but we can sense what is happening around us," he added.
Meanwhile, Mr.Yeddyurappa, who is in Kerala for ayurvedic treatment, is expected to discuss the future course of action on his return to Bengaluru on December 7, said party sources....
