K’taka: BJP dissidents leave for Delhi

Last Updated: Thursday, March 24, 2011 - 14:57

Bangalore: Karnataka unit BJP President K S
Eswarappa and two other leaders who have been gunning for the ouster of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today left for Delhi to brief the high command on the affairs in the party and its
government here.

State unit party spokesman C T Ravi and former minister
Aravind Limbavali, whom Yeddyurappa unceremoniously dismissed
from his ministry, are accompanying Eswrappa.

"There are some problems in the state. Ministers and MLAs
have communicated their problems to me. I am going to Delhi to
convey their grievances to the high command on these issues,"
Eswarappa told reporters at the airport.

"The party is important than any individual. We will
brief the high command on the problems faced by legislators,"
Ravi said.

In another development, a beleaguered Yeddyurappa has
been holding discussions with his ministerial colleagues on the
progress achieved on implementation of the 2010-11 budget
proposals.

Of the 27 ministers, only about 20 have responded to the
Chief Minister`s call, a development that has brought to fore
dissensions in the ministry.

Tourism Minister Janardhana Reddy and Health Minister B Sreeramulu are the notable absentees to the meeting and they have joined the ranks of rebels.

Karnataka`s representative in New Delhi, V Dhananjaya
Kumar disapproved Eswrappa led delegation`s visit to the
national capital, saying "(there is) no need to go to Delhi
and they should have discussed with the Chief Minister
whatever grievances they have".

The rebels have launched "oust Yeddyurappa and save BJP
campaign" after fresh allegations came out against the Chief
Minister.
