Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa has termed as “unfortunate” the Opposition's conduct during Governor H.R. Bhardwaj's joint address to the State legislature on Thursday.
Addressing presspersons after the Assembly was adjourned for the day amidst bedlam, Mr. Yeddyurappa said the Opposition had got frustrated over the outcome of elections to taluk and zilla panchayats. The Congress and Janata Dal (S) had not allowed the smooth functioning of the House after the BJP came to power 30 months ago. He urged the Opposition to facilitate the smooth functioning of both the Houses and said the Government was ready for a debate on all issues.
Opposition members prevented the Governor from making the customary address to the joint session of legislature by urging him not to read out the “Government's speech.” He condemned the Opposition attitude in the House and said and the Congress and JD (S) leaders' actions were anti-democratic.
