Three days after Janata Dal (S) supremo and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda snubbed by Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala, a group of JD(S) MLCs have demanded that he ‘go back to Gujarat’.

Over a 100 people gathered at Bengaluru's Maurya circle on Thursday, protesting against the Governor. They burnt an effigy and tyres in protest against the governor’s behaviour.

On April 4, Deve Gowda had sought an appointment to meeting the Governor in order to submit a memorandum after the party’s protest against the formation of anti-corruption bureau (ACB). He was kept waiting for 45 minutes and as the governor was resting. Gowda eventually had to leave.

“Karnataka Raj Bhavan has turned into Gujarat Bhavan.  We started the “Gujarat Wapas Chalo” protest. He must apologise for the behaviour,” said Sadananda, media spokesperson for JD(s).

The Yuva Janata Dal (Secular) president Rame Gowda said in a circular that they would lock up the governor’ house if he does not apologise.
