Nothing unconstitutional will be done in K'taka, PM tells NDA
BJP today launched a campaign against Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj demanding his immediate recall and knocked at the doors of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who gave an assurance that "nothing unconstitutional" will be done.

The Centre also gave clear indications it may not not be acting on the recommendation of the Governor in a "special" report he sent yesterday for imposing President's rule in the wake of the Supreme Court verdict quashing the disqualification of 11 rebel BJP MLAs.

On a day of hectic activities in the capital and in Bangalore, an NDA delegation headed by L K Advani met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and told him that the Governor's report yesterday was unconstitutional and should not be acted upon.

The delegation demanded that the government should initiate the processs of recall of the Governor whom, it said, had repeatedly "violated" the Constitution in letter and spirit.

After the meeting, Advani told reporters that, "The Prime Minister assured us that nothing unconstitutional will be done in Karnataka." The PM told them that he had not seen the report himself yet but the Home Minister had read it.

The delegation's meeting with the Prime Minister followed a meeting of top NDA leaders in the morning which decided that Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will parade all his supporting MLAs before President Pratibha Patil.
