BJP president Amit Shah has said the legacy of Congress Party is the horrific emergency, blatant misuse of article 356, subverting the courts, media and civil society.
In a series of tweets, Mr Shah said, president of the Congress Rahul Gandhi obviously doesn’t remember the glorious history of his party. He said the Murder of Democracy happens the minute a desperate Congress made an opportunist offer to the JD(S), not for Karnataka’s welfare but for their petty political gains.
Mr Shah said, BJP has the people’s mandate in Karnataka with 104 seats, while Congress dropped to 78 seats and his own Chief Minister and Ministers lost by big margins. JD(S) won only 37 seats and lost their deposits on several others. He said people are wise to realise this.
Earlier in a tweet, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had said the BJP’s irrational insistence that it will form a Government in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn’t have the numbers, is to make a mockery of the Constitution.
He said, this morning, while the BJP celebrates its hollow victory, India will mourn the defeat of democracy.
