Chandigarh,

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has hailed today’s developments in Karnataka Assembly as a vindication of the Congress party’s moral and political stand, and a total loss of face for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which had stooped to new lows of political impropriety in its desperation to grab power in the state by hook or by crook.

Reacting to the resignation of BS Yeddyurappa ahead of the crucial floor test, the Chief Minister said Indian democracy had been saved from total desecration at the hands of the power-hungry BJP, thanks to the Supreme Court, which had come to the rescue to uphold the Constitution of the country.

The events of the day had thoroughly exposed the dirty nexus between the party and the Karnataka Governor, who had violated all norms of Constitutional decorum and democratic principles to sub-serve the interests of his political masters, said Captain Amarinder.

Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala should immediately step down on ethical grounds in view of the developments in the House, said the Punjab Chief Minister, adding that Vala, an RSS functionary who was clearly working at the behest of the BJP leadership, had lost all moral right to continue in office. The august office of the Governor had been maligned and denigrated by Vala and the Supreme Court should order his dismissal if he fails to resign, said Captain Amarinder Singh.

Captain Amarinder Singh lauded the role of the apex court in the matter, saying the judiciary still offered a ray of hope in the darkness into which India had been plunged by the malevolent forces spearheaded by the BJP.

The Chief Minister congratulated the Indian National Congress leadership, under the stewardship of Rahul Gandhi, for seeing the fight for democracy in Karnataka to its logical conclusion. He also commended the party leaders and MLAs in Karnataka for refusing to succumb to the pressures and temptations that were reportedly being forced their way by the BJP in the run-up to the floor test.
