Ruling BJP in Karnataka on Monday said it would parade all its 105 MLAs before President Pratibha Patil in New Delhi on Tuesday and seek rejection of Governor H R Bhardwaj's recommendation for imposition of President's Rule.
"We will parade all our 105 MLAs before the President and also demand that she reject the recommendation given by the Governor", party's state unit President K S Eshwarappa said after a meeting of BJP legislature party convened hours after the B S Yeddyurappa government won the trust vote by a voice vote and Bharadwaj recommended central rule.
"Since the time he took over as the Governor of Karnataka, he has not been behaving in the manner that befits the holy post but has been acting like a Congress agent...," he told reporters in Bangalore.
Charging the Governor with engaging in "conspiratorial politics", Eshwarappa said Bhardwaj should either be sacked or recalled.
