Don’t try ‘Operation Lotus’ again: Siddu warns BJP

Bengaluru: Former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah, on Sunday, October 28, hit out at the BJP for predicting that the JDS-Congress government would fall and warned it against indulging in ‘Operation Lotus’ again, saying that the BJP was already in a state of “coma” due to its past deeds.

Siddaramaiah is the head of the Congress-JD(S) coalition co-ordination committee.

‘Operation Lotus’ refers to the BJP’s strategy during Yeddyurappa’s previous tenure as the chief minister (in 2008), when it made several MLAs of other parties resign and contest the elections on the party’s ticket and win, to strengthen its numbers in the assembly.

“Yeddyurappa (now state BJP chief) has once again made a statement that the government would fall. Already due to several rounds of operations, the lotus (BJP symbol) in Karnataka is in coma. Now once again don’t try your hands into the wrong adventure of Operation Lotus,” Siddu said in a tweet.

The Congress leader asserted that the BJP would remain as an opposition party in the state.

His tweet came in response to repeated comments by Yeddyurappa and other BJP leaders expressing doubts about the continuance of the coalition government headed by H D Kumaraswamy, ever since it came to power in May this year after the elections threw up a hung assembly.

Congress and JD(S) have accused the BJP of attempting to destabilise the coalition government by trying to poach their MLAs, a charge denied by the saffron party.
