'Signature of several Congress MLAs in letter to Guv forged'
The BJP on Thursday alleged 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.
Addressing reporters here, Union Human Resources Minister Prakash Javadekar said 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 was not something new to the Congress.
When the polls in Manipur threw up a hung Assembly, 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.
In Karnataka also, the Congress had resorted to their age old practice, Javadekar said, adding the party has become synonymous with the word forgery.
