BJP trying to dislodge Congress-JDS govt in Karnataka: Deve Gowda

New Delhi, Feb 7 : Former prime minister HD Deve Gowda took a jibe at the BJP, saying that the party was attempting to establish its government in Karnataka by dislodging the Congress-JD(S) government in the state.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Gowda compared the status of Congress' farm loan waiver to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's schemes and promises.

Our promise: FarmersLoanWaiver -Status: Ongoing, Modi's promise: Ram Mandir,Clean Ganga,Interlinking of rivers, 15 Lakh into bank accounts -Status: Never, the JD(S) supremo tweeted.

Further taking a swipe at the BJP, Gowda said that 'ongoing' was a better status than 'never', adding that the BJP's only 'ongoing' status is 'Operation Lotus' in Karnataka, referring to the party's electoral symbol.

'Ongoing' is a better status to be in than 'Never'. The only 'Ongoing' status in BJP is 'Operation Lotus' attempt in Karnataka, he wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Earlier in the day, the Karnataka Assembly was adjourned till Friday after a protest by BJP MLAs, claiming that the Congress-JD(S) alliance is a minority government and it does not have the required numbers. With the opposition unrelenting amid the uproar, the Assembly was adjourned till 11 am tomorrow.

In a jibe at the BJP, former state chief minister Siddaramaiah said: Let them move a no-confidence motion. What's preventing them? We have called a legislature party meeting and they will all (four dissenting Congress MLAs) return tomorrow. The budget will be presented tomorrow. The government has the majority.

In the 224-member Karnataka Legislative Assembly, the BJP has 104 seats, while the JD(S) has 37 seats and Congress 80 seats.
