Jammu (J&K) [India], July 08 (ANI): Asserting that BJP has no involvement in the political crisis of Karnataka, Ram Madhav said that the current situation is due to infighting in the Congress-JD(S) coalition government.

"'Ulta chor kotwal ko dante'. (it is a case of thief accusing the policeman). Whatever is happening in the Karnataka is happening because of the ambitions of certain leaders of their own party. There are leaders who are engineering dissent in their party. BJP has no involvement. We are just watching," he said when asked about the Congress blaming BJP for the political crisis in the state.

"The Congress-JD(S) coalition was against the wishes of people. Their infighting has created this issue," the the BJP national general secretory added.

Earlier in the day, twenty-one ministers of the Congress in Karnataka resigned from the cabinet amid the ongoing political turmoil in the state.

"21 Karnataka Congress ministers have resigned voluntarily," KarnatakaCongress Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah said while addressing the media.

The 13-month-old coalition government slumped into crisis following the resignation of their 11 MLAs from the membership of the state Assembly on June 6.

On resignation by various Congress leaders in recent days, Madhav said, "Congress is leaderless and rudderless. I don't want to comment on the internal situation of the party."

When asked about Hurriyat Conference saying it was ready for talks with the Centre to discuss insurgency in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Madhav said that Hurriyat conference cannot dictate terms and time of the talks

"Hurriyat is not in a position to dictate the government of India when to hold talks and when not to hold talks. There was an offer given to them by the then government two-year special interlocuter was appointed at that time Hurriyat was not willing to talk They cannot dictate terms and time of the talks,"

Repeating BJP stance on Article370, Ram Madhav said that the Modi-led government is committed to repealing the provision which provides special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

"As far as 370 is concerned, our ideological commitment is well known. We are committed to repealing it," Madhav. (ANI)
