Following the governor’s announcement, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad accused the Congress of “blowing up the Constitution to shambles”.
“The party that blew up the constitution to shambles is teaching us the constitution, the party that imposed President rule the most number of times is giving us lessons,” Prasad said.
Shortly before the governor’s letter, BJP’s Karnataka unit had created a stir when it tweeted details of the oath-taking ceremony.
