As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continued to crack down on his supporters in the ruling dispensation, Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP) President B.S, Yeddyurappa on Tuesday threatened to retaliate, hinting that he was no longer keen on the survival of the Jagadish Shettar-led State government.
“We will bring it to the notice of the Governor [that the government has lost majority]. When the government has lost majority and is not interested to run the administration with the support of our supporters, the only option left before the Chief Minister is to dissolve the House and seek fresh mandate,” Mr. Yeddyurappa told reporters at Mysore.
“I wish to tell the Chief Minister that you don’t have majority. Dissolve the Assembly and let’s face elections,” Mr. Yeddyurappa said.
