Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)
Bengaluru, Apr 8: After the results of the bypoll held for three constituencies in the state are announced, the chief minister will have to vacate the seat. Yediyurappa therefore has to honourably make an exit by tendering his resignation after April 17,” said BJP rebel MLA, Basanagouda Patil Yatnal.
Speaking to media persons on Wednesday April 7, he predicted that after April 17, many more BJP legislators and ministers will revolt. He wanted to know whether the rule that people in the BJP aged above 75 cannot hold positions of power does not apply to Yediyurappa. "He already has got a bonus of two years. It is best for him to step aside on his own," he felt.
"As the opposition leaders are busy striking understanding with the chief minister at his residence, I am functioning as the opposition leader for now, I will request the speaker to extend the facility for which the leader of the opposition is eligible to me," he said.
He noted that many people have been wondering which power is preventing the party from taking disciplinary action against him even after 60 days of serving the show cause notice. He claimed that the party legislators and workers are with him and he will disclose the identity of the power that is supporting him at an opportune time. He said that the enforcement directorate had questioned B Y Vijayendra in the Federal Bank scandal. He challenged Vijayendra to prove that this is untrue.
