BANGALORE: The Opposition BJP on Wednesday petitioned Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala on Siddaramaiah government’s alleged failure on all fronts of administration.

A delegation of party leaders led by state president Prahlad Joshi met the Governor and urged him to intervene to put the administration back on rails. They submitted a memorandum to Vajubhai alleging that governance had gone downhill and asked him to take cognisance of it. The BJP drew his attention to the ‘maladministration’  during the past 17 months by citing examples such as the attack on IAS officer Rashmi, sexual assault of a child in a private school in Jalahalli, attack on people from the North-East and the stand-off between doctors and the government.  The memorandum also referred to the Lokayukta filing an FIR against Wakf Minister Qamarul Islam and demanded his removal from the cabinet.

The BJP has threatened protests inside and outside the legislature during the Belgaum winter session over the government’s failure to ensure payment of `2,500 per tonne to sugarcane farmers by sugar factories.
