Karnataka BJP suspends `Operation Kamal’

Though the stunning performance in Lok Sabha polls has paved way for the BJP in Karnataka to destabilize one-year old JD(S)-Congress coalition government and even state party leaders attempting to attract several Congress MLAs towards `Operation Kamal’,  the BJP high-command seems to be cautioned the state party not to resort to such tactic at present.

Fearing that such an exercise may sent wrong signals towards Narendra Modi government at the Center branding him as `impatient’ towards non-BJP governments, the BJP has asked state party to suspend its `Operation Kamal’ exercise.

BJP state president BS Yeddyurappa said that the leaders of his political quarter have instructed him not to make any move which can destabilize the coalition government in Karnataka. Further, he accused that former Congress Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is plotting to get some legislators to defect.

“I have just returned from Delhi. Our leaders have instructed me not to take any move that will scuttle the government in the state. I believe that Siddaramaiah is sending some of his MLAs to me and is trying to take political leverage. We will remain silent for the time being. They may fight with each other and anything can happen. We have been clearly informed not to disturb or made attempts to topple the government,” he added.

The JDS-Congress coalition, which is in power in the state, went through a rough patch during the campaigning of the recently concluded elections. Congress has 79 MLAs while Janata Dal-Secular (JDS) has 37 MLAs in the coalition government holding power in the state.
