Mangaluru, Apr 8: BJP national general secretary and in-charge of Karnataka, Arun Singh, on Thursday April 8 said that there are no differences in the BJP party and both chief minister B S Yediyurappa and minister K S Eshwarappa are united.
He was speaking at the airport during his visit to a private programme of BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel.
Answering the queries of mediapersons over Eshwarappa’s letter to the Governor against Yediyurappa for ‘interfering’ in the affairs of his Rural Development and Panchayati Raj (RDPR) department, Arun Singh said, "All leaders are united. I have spoken in this regard. Eshwarappa is senior-most leader in the party. He has also worked as party president and deputy chief minister. I have spoken to him and there is no confusion. But, he should not have written a letter. But now, it is ok and I have spoken to him. Both, Eshwarappa and Yediyurappa are united. There are no differences of opinion in the party.
"I have come for the election campaign in the state. Now I am going to attend state BJP president's private programme. Later, continuously for three days, I will be campaigning in the bye-elections for the Belgavi Lok Sabha constituency and Basavakalyan and Maski assembly constituencies. Our party workers are working hard to win the elections.
"Our emphasis is to win the elections. Congress party is making continuous conspiracies. There is no people's mandate for Congress in the state. Congress will lose the elections. It will lose the elections by a huge margin of votes. BJP workers are working with immense effort. Good works are going on under the leadership of Yediyurappa,” he said.
On a question over MLA Basanagouda Yatnal’s statement on leadership change in the state, Arun Singh refused to comment.
