Bangalore, Nov 29 (): Demanding the amended Bill to be passed in the winter session of the Parliament, former Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa has criticized the Congress as well as the BJP to create disorder over the issue of providing special grade to Hyderabad and Karnataka under Article 371.
While talking to reporters in Hubli, the former CM said that the state MPs should take up the matter in the Parliament and provide justice to the State by fighting for the noble cause. National parties were no more interested in protecting the interests of the State and hence regional parties should start struggling for the cause, said Mr Yeddyurappa.
Rajya Sabha member M. Venkaiah Naidu could have raised the issue but he too did not pay much attention to it, said Yeddyurappa.
Responding to Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar’s performance, Mr. Yeddyurappa stated that as far as development of the State was concerned, Shettar has not given a pleasing response.
Reacting on a question whether the BJP government would complete its term, the former Karnataka CM said that he has nothing to do with that and it is all up to Mr. Shettar and State BJP president K.S. Eshwarappa.
Mr. Yeddyurappa said that a number of his supporters who are willing to join the KJP met him and also discussed about the organisational plans of the party.Supporters are working day and night which included BJP MLAs and MLCs as well, said Yeddyurrapa.
Meanwhile Yeddyurrapa who was asked to resign his Chief Minister post by the BJP high command following his involvement in the alleged irregularities of mining declined to comment on the issue of the party chief Nitin Gadkari’s involvement in the Puthi scam issue.
He also declared that he had neither confusion nor any regret in joining the Karnataka Janata Paksha and will be resigning from th BJP on November 30.
