Hubli: Karnataka's BJP unit president B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday stirred speculation about the stability of the Congress-JDS alliance government, saying that "anything" could happen in the state politics after the bye-election results are announced on May 23.
Yeddyurappa said: "This government has not fulfilled any promises made to the people. Their agenda is to keep the BJP away from power.
After the bye-election results are out on May 23, anything can happen."
Exuding confidence, he said that the BJP would win both the Assembly seats -- Chincholi and Kundgol -- which are scheduled to go to elections on May 19.
The former chief minister claimed that over 20 legislators belonging to the alliance would not support Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy-led government.
Former Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar said the BJP will stage a state-wide protest from Monday against what he called "an emergency-like situation" prevalent in the state.
He alleged the people having views against the CM and Home Minister M B Patil were being jailed.
"There is an emergency like situation in the state. MB Patil is acting like a dictator. Cases have been filed. People who express their views against the CM and the Home Minister have been sent to jail," Shettar said....
