This unholy attempt to topple the government in Karnataka and the cheap ways employed in doing so are harming democracy,” said Chowdhury.
“They are doing everything at their disposal to see the government falls. When you see the sequence of events, it is clear that the BJP is the one trying to bring down Karnataka government” Chowdhury added.
“Whatever is happening in Karnataka, our party has nothing to do with it. Our party is fully committed to the dignity of parliamentary democracy,” responded Rajnath Singh in the Lower House of Parliament.
