Kumaraswamy's Congress remarks demeaning: BJP.
IANS New Delhi The BJP on Monday termed as"absolutely demeaning"the remarks of Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy that he was at mercy of Congress and not of the state's 6.5 crore people, saying he has become"chief manager of the Congress'ATM machine"in the state. Talking to media persons here, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said Kumaraswamy's remarks were akin to abusing democracy."This is absolutely demeaning to the democratic fabric of the country. This is the fallout when you play with the mandate of the people for your petty political reasons. The kind of statement that Kumaraswamy has made is completely against from the essential tenets of the democracy,"he said. He said BJP chief Amit Shah had already expressed apprehension that the way"people's mandate has been ignored"in Karnataka, the state government will be run from 10 Janpath - the address of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi. Noting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing a rally at Baghpat on Sunday, had called for government should be run through"janmat (people's mandate)"and"not from Janpath", he said that this message should reach Kumaraswamy and the Congress.
