The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to hold demonstrations in all taluks and Legislative Assembly constituencies on Wednesday and Thursday demanding the recall of Governor H.R. Bhardwaj.
The BJP on Monday held agitations in all district headquarters alleging that the Governor had failed to discharge his constitutional responsibilities.
Addressing presspersons here on Tuesday, S. Prakash, media in-charge of the BJP, said party workers and elected representatives would take out rallies in taluk headquarters and Assembly segments opposing the “dictatorial style of functioning” of the Governor.
The BJP would continue its agitation if the Centre failed to recall the Governor in the next two days, he warned.
Mr. Prakash said instead of holding demonstrations in front of residences of Union Ministers from the State and Congress President Sonia Gandhi, the Congress took out rallies on city roads demanding the imposition of President's Rule in the State. He told Congress workers to seek instead the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the alleged involvement of several Union Ministers in CWG and 2-G spectrum scams.
The Congress has no moral right to seek the resignation of Assembly Speaker K.G. Bopaiah, he said.
The Supreme Court has not passed any strictures against the Speaker; it has only passed judgment restoring the membership of the disqualified MLAs in the Assembly, he maintained.
