HASSAN: Former minister and JD(S) leader H D Revanna termed the decision of the Congress party to move a no confidence motion against LA Speaker K G Bhopaiah ‘too late’ and asked why Congress did not move the motion immediately after the verdict of the Supreme Court. He told reporters on Sunday that Congress leaders were swinging into action after the issue has lost its importance. The Congress is making a futile exercise as the opposition party should send its decision 15 days before the announcement of dates for assembly which will commence in ten days, he added. He further said that the Speaker should have resigned immediately after the verdict of the Supreme Court on issue of disqualification of independent MLAs.
The JD(S) party has also decided to raise some important issues, including the delay in the appointment of a new Lokayukta, in the Assembly, he added.
When asked, Revanna clarified that he was in no way concerned with the issue of the transfer of Deputy Commissioner K G Jagadish. District In-charge Minister V Somanna should answer for the question, he added.
Revanna reiterated that he would continue his fight against the state government till sufficient funds are released for the pending projects in the district and for the farmers’ welfare programmes in the state.
