DCM Parameshwara and BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar spar over political crisis


Bengaluru, Jul 8 (IANS): Amid the political crisis in Karnataka, Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara and senior BJP leader Rajeev Chandrasekhar locked horns on Monday over the transportation of rebel Congress MLAs to Mumbai.

Parameshwara, a senior Congress leader, accused the BJP MP of arranging the aircraft to ferry its party MLAs, a charge denied by the saffron party leader.

"Traces of BJP's role in destabilizing the government are all over the place. It is disgraceful that the party is attempting to topple a democratically elected government and grab power through the back door when the state is reeling under one of the worst droughts," Parameshwara tweeted.

He attached a report which said that the aircraft used to fly the rebel Congress and JD-S MLAs from Karnataka to Mumbai belonged to a company linked to the BJP MP.

Chandrasekhar responded that the aircraft was a commercial one that it had been chartered even by Congress Ministers in the past.

"So don't blame me or an 'aircraft' or BJP for the problems in your crooked corrupt opportunistic alliance," the BJP MP said.

The verbal spat came at a time when the beleaguered ruling JD-S-Congress alliance in Karnataka was on the brink on Monday after Small-Scale Industries Minister H. Nagesh resigned and withdrew support to the 13-month-old coalition government.

On Saturday, over a dozen Congress and JD-S MLAs resigned. The Congress accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of hatching a conspiracy to topple the coalition government.

    Any interested party can charter a plane but having a stake on that plane is like owning it. These 10 MLA were taken by this plane to Mumbai a BJP ruled state then detained them in hotel like captives without outside contact with heavy police presence around the hotel and mobile phones taken away from them and only BJP leaders contacting them frequently. But BJP lead by Rajnath Singh and Yeddy claim innocent and washing thier hands in public to fool people that they have nothing to do with ongoing situation in Karnataka.

    How can you say that!. Just have a look at congress party. Everything is wrong with it. It looks like a mob with only one purpose of personal gain. Some people may have a hidden agenda to support this so called party but I dont have one.
