Deve Gowda's 10-pt chargesheet against Congress
September 18, 2006 14:41 IST
Former prime minister and Janata Dal-Secular chief H D Deve Gowda on Monday released a 10-point charge sheet against Congress leaders.
Gowda dared the Congress leaders to either reply to his questions or apologise to the people of the state for attempting to destabilise a popular government.
He said the Congress had treated the coalition with his party as a marriage of convenience and indulged in an 'illicit political relationship with [rebel JD-S leader] Siddaramaiah and his supporters during the local body elections'.
He said the Congress not only humiliated his party leaders but also tried to engineer defections and bring about a split.
He said the JD-S was forced to part ways since the coalition government headed by Dharam Singh did not take any action against the people who exploited the state's precious resources.
