Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray lambasted the Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala for ‘murdering democracy’ by inviting BS Yeddyurappa to form government in state.
Thackeray on Thursday said that the party, which has the largest strength should be asked to form the govt. but whatever happened in Karnataka was murder of democracy. The Sena chief claimed that it was pretty evident the way events unfolded during Karnataka elections that decisions were being taken from Delhi.
Thackeray as per Economic Times said, “If you are going to appoint chief ministers in such a manner, then why hold elections? Appoint the chief minister from Delhi. Also Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not have to interrupt his foreign tours to campaign during elections if CMs are appointed from Delhi.”
He accused the BJP of raking up the issue of Ram Mandir only when elections were around the corner. He also challenged the party to build Ram Mandir in the same ‘brazen’ manner, in which it decided to come to power in Karnataka.
