From freedom is dead to constitution’s destruction: Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati Take Jibe at Karnataka’s power tussle

Yeddyurappa was invited by Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala a day ago to form the government and prove majority within 15 days, following which he was sworn in as the chief minister on Thursday morning.


As the power tussle continues in Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and BSP chief Mayawati on Thursday slammed B S Yeddyurappa’s oath taking as an “attack on democracy”.

Yeddyurappa was invited by Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala a day ago to form the government and prove majority within 15 days, following which he was sworn in as the chief minister on Thursday morning.

Hitting out at BJP in a poetic style over Yeddyurappa’s oath taking despite Supreme Court posting the matter for hearing for Friday, Akhilesh Yadav said, “Today oath of democracy will be taken, Today once more it will be killed, Today once again the power of government will be shown, Today once more conscious will be up for sale, Today the freedom will be dead a little more.”
