SC restores BJP rebels' membership, Congress, JD-S seek Yeddyurappa's ouster

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Saturday mounted pressure on its 11 rebel legislators to back beleaguered Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa as opposition Congress and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S)   »

Bangalore: The political crisis continued in Karnataka over the future of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government with the party saying Governor H.R. Bharadwaj had "accepted the support letters" from its 10 rebel lawmakers, while a terse Raj Bhavan communique late Sunday said "a special report" has been sent on this to the central government.

The Raj Bhavan released a one-line statement saying Bhardwaj has sent "a special report to the central government" following the Supreme Court restoring the membership of 16 rebel lawmakers 11 from the BJP and five independents.

The Raj Bhavan communique said: "In the context of recent judgment of the Hon'ble Supreme Court in the matter of disqualification of MLAs delivered on 13.05.2011 and its implication to the developments in the State, His Excellency the Governor of Karnataka has submitted a special report to Government of India this evening."

Following this, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa shot off a letter to President Pratibha Patil saying his government "apprehends that the governor might have recommended central rule in the state".

The chief minister told reporters that in his letter to the president had clearly stated that "there is no constitutional crisis in the state".

Yeddyurappa announced that he was calling an emergency meeting of his cabinet Monday to take stock of the situation.

The governor's "special report" follows 10 of the 11 rebel BJP legislators Sunday extending their support to Yeddyurapa.

The rebels who were in New Delhi faxed a joint letter signed by all the 10 and late Sunday tried to meet Bhardwaj in Bangalore to give individual support letters.

Bhardwaj did not meet the rebels but met a group of ministers and BJP's special representative in New Delhi V. Dhananjaya Kumar.

Kumar told reporters soon after meeting Bhardwaj that "the governor had accepted the support letters."
