BANGALORE: Following the High Court quashing the appointment of Justice Chandrashekharaiah as the Upalokayukta, the Congress demanded the resignation of Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda.
Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dr G Parameshwar told Express that the Congress had always maintained that the government has violated all norms during the appointment of both the Lokayukta and the Upalokayukta. “The High Court order has only vindicated our observation,” he added.
Parameshwar added: “Only last week did the court slap the state government by setting aside the appointment of the police chief.”
Former chief minister and Lok Sabha member N Dharam Singh too opined that the BJP government has erred in the appointment to the constitutional posts.
