BJP: Congress forged signatures of MLAs

Bengaluru : While talking to media in Bengaluru, Union Human Resources Minister Prakash Javadekar alleged that that the Congress has forged the signatures of many of its legislators while submitting the party’s list of MLAs to the governor claiming it had the numbers to form the government.

He also added that one was at a loss to understand how Congress could collect the signatures of all the MLAs even before they arrived in Bengaluru and attended the Congress Legislature Party meeting.

He said forging signatures and other documents wasnot something new to the Congress.

When the polls in Manipur threw up a hung assembly, the Congress submitted a forged letter of support of the Manipur People’s Party.

However, it was found that the grand old party had forged it, he said.

Defending Governor Vajubhai Vala’s action in inviting BJP to form the government, Javadekar said he had only followed the rule book as there was no pre-poll alliance in Karnataka and Congress and Janata Dal-Secular were bitter foes before the poll, where the parties’ leaders called each other names.
