Cong-JD(S) ’subverted’ people’s mandate: BJP

Sunday 30 May 2004

CHENNAI: BJP on Sunday hit out at the Congress and Janata Dal(secular) for allegedly "subverting" the mandate of the people of Karnataka in the recent Assembly polls.

BJP President M Venkaiah Naidu told newsmen here that Congress and the JD-S had forged a post-poll alliance only to keep the BJP out of the government.

By coming to a post-poll agreement, the two parties had "hijacked" the people’s mandate, he said.

Congress and JD-S has formed a coalition government in Karnataka.

BJP emerged the single largest party with 79 seats, followed by Congress with 65 seats and JD-S with 58 seats in the 224-member House after the Assembly elections delivered a fractured verdict.
