Hyderabad: Describing the Raj Bhavan as "the centre of conspiracies by the BJP," CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy on Wednesday expressed doubts as to whether the JD(S) would be allowed to form the government with the Congress's support in Karnataka.
It is quite natural that both these "secular" parties have decided to keep the BJP out of power, he said.
"It's good they have come together but we have doubts.
Raj Bhavan as the 'centre of conspiracies' by the BJP...they may not allow them even though they have required numbers, may not be allowed to form the government," Reddy said. He saw the Congress's move to support the JD(S) as "quite natural", saying had it not "accommodated" the JD(S), the BJP would have done so. "I think they (the Congress) have done the wise thing by giving unconditional support," the veteran Communist leader said. He said the Congress, which failed to come to power on its own steam, should not now "dream" of prime ministership and stake claim to lead an anti-BJP front.
