Bengaluru, Nov 26: The delegation of Karnataka Congress leaders met the Governor Thawar Chand Gehlot on Thursday and urged for invoking President’s rule for ‘failure’ of constitutional machinery in the state by the ruling BJP.

The delegation led by state President D.K. Shvakumar and Opposition leader Siddaramaiah submitted a memorandum in this regard.

“If the Contractor raises a loan to carry out any such project work he has to pay at least 12 per cent interest on the investment. In such a situation what will be left for the Contractor to complete the work,” Shiva Kumar questioned.

“There is also concern about law and order issues in the State where the Chief Minister has openly expressed his inability to control reaction by few fringe elements. Communal violence has increased under the current government. It is not democracy but anarchy that has become the system in the State,” Siddaramaiah stated.

“These facts and circumstances clearly shows and establish that there is rampant corruption, maladministration in the State of Karnataka; which has caused loss of several thousand crores to exchequer and the same has been swallowed by some of the Ministers, MLA’s MP’s and Officials and therefore it is proper to clamp the President’s Rule in Karnataka,” he added.
