BJP urges Prez, PM to expel M'rashtra Govt
BJP leader Nitin Gadkari has urged President APJ Abdul Kalam and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to dissolve the Congress-NCP run Democratic Front government in Maharashtra.
He alleged that the Congress-NCP government had been violating Section 371(2) of the Constitution as well as the directives of the Governor for three years continuously, which he considers to be a very serious matter.
For the first time in the history of Maharashtra, the Governor did not give permission for the Appropriation Bill and hence the same could not be tabled, he said in a release.
Gadkari alleged that an amount of Rs 1,041 crore, allotted to other regions of Maharashtra, was diverted for the Krishna Valley Development Project. He described this as violation of the Governor's orders as well as that of the Constitution and approached the President and Prime Minister with his request.
Both the Houses were adjourned when this issue was raised in the Legislative Assembly.
