Promises stable government if voted to power

Invites M.P. Prakash to join Samajawadi Party

DAVANGERE: The Samajawadi Party State unit president and former Chief Minister, S. Bangarappa, on Tuesday demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into irregularities allegedly committed by the Janata Dal (Secular)-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) coalition government.

Mr. Bangarappa told presspersons that the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa had said that he would expose the blunders committed by his predecessor H.D. Kumaraswamy.

All decisions and steps were taken by mutual trust and agreement in the last 22 months. Both of them had indulged in mutual denigration after losing power.

Mr. Bangarappa said there had been bickering in the Janata Dal (Secular), the BJP and the Congress. He said the Janata Dal (Secular) was heading for a split. There were many leaders in all the three parties aspiring to be the next Chief Minister.

He appealed to the people to judge whether these parties would be able to give a strong government. He said the Samajawadi Party would provide a stable government if voted to power.

Tie-up ruled out

To a question, Mr. Bangarappa ruled out his party having a truck with the BJP, the Janata Dal (Secular) or the Congress in the coming elections.
