New Delhi: With Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa facing allegations of nepotism in land allotment, his supporters in state BJP today complained to central party leadership against senior leader H N Ananth Kumar accusing him of inciting rebellion among party ranks for leadership change.

According to Yeddyurappa's supporters, who met BJP President Nitin Gadkari and Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley here, they also sought the immediate intervention of the central leadership in putting a full stop to Kumar's alleged anti-Yeddyurappa activities.

The supporters told BJP central leaders about Kumar's alleged attempts to get Yeddyurappa removed from the top post.

The development came amid reports that Kumar had been inciting some party MLAs against Yeddyurappa who is facing the heat for allegedly favouring his sons in land allotment in the state.

The reports also suggested the Kumar was getting support in his attempts to dislodge Yeddyurappa from Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and in getting State Rural Development and Panchatai Raj Minister Jagadish Shettar installed in the Chief Minister's chair.
