Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj today recommended imposition of President's rule in the state.
Bhardwaj, who returned here this afternoon after a three-day visit to Delhi, despatched a "special report" on the unfolding political situation in the state in the aftermath of the Supreme Court setting aside disqualification of 16 MLAs even as 11 of the rebel BJP MLAs pledged their "unconditional" support to the B S Yeddyurappa government.
A brief communique issued by Raj Bhavan said, "In the context of recent judgement of the Supreme Court in the matter of disqualification of MLAs on May 13, 2011 and its implications to the developments in the state, a special report has been sent to the Centre".
A Raj Bhavan source told PTI that Bhardwaj in his report has recommended imposition of central rule.
