How can BJP be blamed for Congress' Karnataka crisis, asks Prakash Javadekar
NEW DELHI: Union I&B minister and BJP’s Karnataka incharge Prakash Javadekar rubbished Congress allegations that his party had a role in the breaking up of the JDS-Congress government. He said it was a result of the failures of the Congress party.

“This is absolute rubbish. Every MLA has raised objections on their leadership. How can BJP be blamed for that? They are unable to keep their own house in order and blame others for it. Of late, they have been blaming BJP for everything. There is no Congress president for the past two months. Is BJP to be blamed for that? Congress has not only lost the elections but has also lost the plot. Further, they have lost the confidence of their cadre,” he told ET.

Javadekar declined to comment on the issue of Karnataka Speaker refusing to accept the resignation of MLAs. “I do not wish to speak on the matter. It is sub-judice as well,” the minister said.

When asked about defections in Goa, Javadekar said: “Did Congress even know this was happening? Their own MLAs were leaving and they were unaware.”
