Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday rejected the charges levelled by JD-S leader H.D. Kumaraswamy that the BJP has offered Rs 100 crore and cabinet posts to its newly elected MLAs to form a government in Karnataka and expressed confidence about forming a stable government.
"We are confident of forming a government. We have met the Governor and submitted our claim. We are very sure that we will make a government and a very stable one," Javadekar told reporters.
Javadekar, who is the Karnataka in-charge for the Bharatiya Janata Party, made the remarks soon after Kumaraswamy accused the BJP of horse-trading and said his party legislators were offered Rs 100 crore each and cabinet berths.
The JD-S leader named Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah for the offer as the BJP, he said, was desperate to form a government and deny the JD-S a chance to form a government with Congress' backing.
The JD-S and Congress together have the required majority to form the government, he added.
