The Chief Minister, who is a senior Congress leader, expressed concern over the "brazen shamelessness with which the Governor had murdered India's democracy and Constitution by calling a minority party (BJP) to form the government in Karnataka".
Terming the development in Karnataka after the results were out on May 15 "unfortunate", Amarinder Singh said what was happening was not only sad but also extremely dangerous for the country's politics.
He said that people were now looking up to the Supreme Court for "upholding the constitutional principles".
"Democracy has been brazenly manipulated, mutilated, and massacred in Karnataka. It does not augur well for the future of India. All eyes are now on the Supreme Court to come out to protect constitutional ethos, on which the very foundation of our nation rests," Amarinder Singh tweeted earlier.
