Leader of the Opposition in Karnataka Assembly Mallikarjuna Kharge today criticised the State government for having called the special Assembly session in Belgaum this month 'in a hurry'.

Addressing a press conference here, he charged the State government with throwing all norms to the winds while announcing to hold a special Assembly session in Belgaum.

Stating that the duration of the session to be held in Belgaum was very short and should have been 20 days instead of three or four days. ''The State government has convened the session only to fulfil the Constitutional obligations which will not serve any purpose'' he said.

Mr Kharge said the previous JD(S)-BJP government had also convened a special session in Belgaum in 2006 and most of the promises made on the floor of the House still remained to be fulfiled. Replying to questions Mr Kharge said KPCC President R V Deshapande had called a meeting of 'introspection' on January 5, in which the causes of party's poor performance in the just concluded eight assembly by-elections would be discussed.

Opining that the ruling BJP government had won five seats in the eight assembly seats held recently employing brute money and muscle power, he said, ''The results of the by-elections will not weaken the strong base of the Congress in Karnataka and it would fight back in the coming days.'' The recently held eight assembly by-elections drew the Congress a blank. The leaders of the party, including Sidharamaiah, Ambarish, R L Jalappa, Jaffer Sharief chose to remain away from the campaigning.
