Karnataka BJP MLA threatens to topple own party govt if houses are not provided for flood-hit people
By India Today 14-Aug-2019
During a visit to the flood affected areas in his Arabhavi constituency, the legislator, Balachandra Jarkiholi is heard telling people "Its our responsibility to provide you houses. I am saying this on record that if we fail to build houses then we will topple the government."
Arabhavi is in Belgavi district, the worst hit by the floods in the State.
Incidentally, Balachandra Jarkiholi's was among the 16 MLAs who had in 2010 withdrawn support to the first BJP government in Karnataka led by Yediyurappa threatening its existence.
Taking note of Jarkiholi's October 6, 2010 letter to him withdrawing support to the then Yediyurappa government, the then governor Hansraj Bhardwaj had asked Yediyurappa to prove his majority on October 12, 2010.
However, Yediyurappa chose to prove the majority on October 11, 2010 but hours before the floor test, the then speaker K G Bopaiah disqualified Jarkiholi and 15 other rebel MLAs.
The move saved the BJP government. Jarkiholi had approached the Supreme Court, which set aside Bopaiahs order.
