BANGALORE - The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party late Friday called for Karnataka “bandh” (shut-down) Saturday against Governor H.R. Bhardwaj permitting prosecution of Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa over land scandals.
We will organise Karnataka bandh tomorrow (Saturday), party spokesperson S. Prakash told IANS, within hours of Bhardwaj announcing that he had sanctioned filing of criminal cases against Yeddyurappa.
The BJP had announced earlier that it would hold rallies across the state and would meet President Pratibha Patil in New Delhi Jan 24 demanding Bhardwajs recall, accusing him of being “biased” against Yeddyurappa and the BJP government in the state.
