Signatures of several Congress MLAs in letter to governor forged, alleges BJP  2 Days ago

Source:   Times Of India  

BENGALURU: The BJP on Thursday alleged that the Congress has forged the signatures of many of its legislators while submitting the party's list of MLAs to the Governor claiming it had the numbers to form the government.
Addressing reporters here, Union human resources minister Prakash Javadekar said one was at a loss to understand how Congress could collect the signatures of all the MLAs even before they arrived in Bengaluru and attended the Congress legislature party meeting.

He said forging signatures and other documents was not something new to the Congress.

When the polls in Manipur threw up a hung assembly, Congress submitted a letter of support of the Manipur People's Party. However, it was later found that the grand old party had forged it, he said.

In Karnataka also, the Congress has resorted to their age-old practice, Javadekar said, adding "the party has become synonymous with the word forgery."

Defending governor Vajubhai Vala's action in inviting the BJP to form the government, Javadekar said he had only followed the rule book as there was no pre-poll alliance in Karnataka and Congress and JDS were bitter foes before the poll, where the parties' leaders called each other names.

"During his election campaign in Karnataka, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had termed JDS as the 'B' team of the BJP. He had said that the JD(S) means nothing but Janata Dal Sangh Parivar. Now they are trying to cobble together an alliance, which is nothing but a sheer opportunistic move," he said.

The Governor did the right thing by inviting the single largest party to form the government and prove the majority on the floor of the House, he added.

Javadekar said it was sad that Congress has held its MLAs captive in 'isolated resorts', severing contacts with their families and not even being allowed to watch newschannels.

Referring to Congress president Rahul Gandhi's remark at Raipur today that the judiciary had been suppressed, Javadekar reminded him of the dark days of the Emergency in 1975.

"The grand old party had not only overturned the judicial system, but also suppressed the freedom of the press. Instead of seeking pardon for their sins, the Congress leader is trying to create a false perception," he said.

Against the backdrop of the developments in Karnataka, Gandhi asserted at an event in Raipur that the Constitution is under 'severe attack', even as he said the judiciary and the press were under "fear" that usually happens in Pakistan under "dictatorship" and some African countries ruled by generals.

He alleged there was an atmosphere of fear in the country with even institutions such as the judiciary and the press being suppressed and threatened.
