“I condemn horse-trading, in general, as it is bad for all. We always respect democratic institutions. Problem is today somebody may come in power and tomorrow he may not be in power but if we violate the constitution, it is going to have an adverse effect on us,” Mamata told media here.
She also criticised Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala for not inviting the JD(S) and Congress alliance to form the government there despite their majority. Making an appeal to the President to guide the country, the chief minister said, “As a protector of this constitution, I appeal to the President of India to guide us, the country and constitution.”
