Administrative Machinery Collapsed Under Congress-JDS Rule: Yediyurappa
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa won the trust vote in the house on Monday via vote
Yediyurappa said he assumed office in a difficult situation with the state facing drought. "The administrative machinery has collapsed... my priority is to bring it back on track," he said.
He also said, "I will not indulge in politics of vengeance. I believe in the forget and forgive principle." Yediyurappa also sought cooperation of the Opposition.
Congress Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah said the Yediyurappa government was "unconstitutional and immoral" and expressed doubts about its longevity. "You have no mandate of the people," Siddaramaiah told Yediyurappa.
"Where is the mandate in your favour... where is the majority... Yediyurappa has become the chief minister with just 105 members," Siddaramaiah said.
"Let us see how long you will be (the chief minister). ... I want you to be (CM) for the full term but I don't think you will be able to complete it (the term)," Siddaramaiah told Yediyurappa.
JDS leader H D Kumaraswamy took exception to Yediyurappa's charge that the administrative machinery had collapsed and said it was a "baseless" one that did not behove the chief minister. "I won't comment on the ways you have come to power. ...," Kumaraswamy said, adding, "you have come to power through conspiracy." He asked the chief minister to reveal how the administrative machinery had collapsed.
