Karnataka crisis: BJP a ‘poacher party’, says Congress leader Adhir Chowdhury

New Delhi: Terming the BJP a “poacher party”, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury Monday said his party will try to raise the Karnataka-crisis issue in Parliament, but not reveal its strategy.

The resignation of 13 MLAs has plunged the Congress-JD(S) government in the state into a crisis. Twelve legislators –nine from the Congress and three from the JD(S) — resigned on Saturday.

Congress MLA Anand Singh had resigned on July 1.

“We’ll try to raise the #Karnataka issue in Parliament but we won’t reveal our weapons. But it is clear that BJP is a poacher party,” Chowdhury, who is the leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, told reporters outside Parliament.

The BJP has however denied any role in the matter and said it was the “power struggle” between Congress leader and former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah and current incumbent HD Kumaraswamy which has resulted in the political crisis in the state.

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.
