NEW DELHI - An angry Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Friday night strongly condemned Karnataka Governor H.R. Bhardwaj’s giving the green signal to the prosecution of Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyuruppa as constitutionally improper and politically motivated” and said he “flaunts his political association on the sleeve”.
Let us remember the governor is a political appointee. He flaunts his political association on the sleeve… His utterances, vocabulary show distinct political colour to his conduct, senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said here.
He said the party’s Karnataka unit was meeting Friday and Saturday and the central leadership will decide its course of action after that.
Bhardwaj granted permission to prosecute BJP’s chief minister Yeddyurappa over allegations of nepotism in land allotment. The sanction was sought by two Bangalore-based advocates.
