Yediyurappa to stay chief minister, detractors must fall in line: BJP

Bengaluru, Jun 19 (IANS): After holding meetings for three days, Karnataka BJP in-charge, Arun Singh on Friday issued a stern warning to disgruntled leaders not speak against the party or its state leadership as the party will be giving full support to Chief Minister, B.S. Yediyurappa.

Singh, from the day one of his arrival on Wednesday evening, had been maintaining that there would be no change of leadership in the state.

Emerging out of the core committee meeting, Yediyurappa flashed a victory symbol, signalling that he has emerged stronger even after his detractors continued to make serious allegations against him and his younger son and state party Vice President B.Y. Vijayendra.

After attending the core committee meeting and prior to leaving for Delhi here, Singh said that Yediyurappa will remain at the helm of affairs and strict action will be taken against those who speak against the party and its decisions.

"There will be no leadership change in Karnataka. We also know that only two or three people are damaging the party by speaking against the BJP's interests. As a first step, we will try and make them understand about this. If they still remain adamant, then definitely, we will take action against them at the right time," he said.

He said that no one should cause any harm to the party's interests. "If at anyone wants to speak ill about anything, there are many issues channelising your energies... towards hitting out at opposition leaders and parties. Why not go after Congress party leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and in state, Siddaramaiah and D.K. Shivakumar. It is a mandatory requirement that our party leaders must speak good about BJP, its policies and its governments, be it at the centre or at the state," he insisted.

The BJP "is a big party and workers have put their heart and soul in it to make it the most successful party in recent times, therefore, all must work together to take the good work done by our leaders and workers", he said.

Echoing the similar sentiments, state Revenue Minister R. Ashoka wondered why every day, and every month this issue of leadership change keeps cropping up, and noted that the party has now firmly decided to put an end to it once and for all by deciding that Yediyurappa will continue to be Chief Minister.

Earlier in the day, Yediyurappa had ruled out any crisis in the party and rubbished charges levelled against him and his son, Vijayendra.

Among his chief detractors are Hubli-Dharwad West MLA Arvind Bellad who claimed that his phone being tapped and his movement being constantly monitored, MLC A.H. Vishwanth, who alleged that Vijayendra was receiving huge kickbacks in the upper Bhadra project while Vijayapura MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal had been demanding Yediyurappa's replacement for the last several months.

    The same attitude displayed by the Congress when at its peak resulted in its decimation. Now the BJP will face the same fate if they do not sort out the aspirations of the dissidents. It has started in Rajasthan, West Bengal, Kerala, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh etc.

    Some Cong-I style politician may come from Delhi and come again, as long as full suitcases are sent to high-command, a shrewd, extremely inefficient yet most ambitious politician, showing the weaknesses and clear sign of old age, will continue along with his super CM, a most corrupt son, who has a hand on every deal and every file, in every department! The party as well as Motu Bhai, are now acutely aware that it will get totally routed in the next elections, just 2 years away, hence looting the state is the unofficial agenda, while the hard truth is that the old man and his most-opportunistic maga, has only around 40 MLA’s support, including the 12 Cong-I turncoats, who are ironically: the CM’s strongest supporters! Not to mention a dozen mutt heads who act like cut-throat, shameless politicians in the garb of saffron robes. The rest of MLA’s are merrily waiting in the wings, desperately wishing for a new leader so that they may become much more prosperous with new positions of power, while the state exchequer is depleted swiftly.

    Shameless .... now there will be divide in the party and some imported MLAs will be available on hire for toppling the government. When there is an unwritten rule in BJP to relinquish the office at attaining age of 70 , all respectable and responsible politicians should follow it.
