Bangalore: Asserting that there was no
dissidence in the Karnataka unit of BJP, Chief Minister BS
Yeddyurappa on Wednesday said there were no differences in party and
all minor issues have been solved.

"There is no dissidence at all. Whatever minor differences
are there, have been resolved," Yeddurappa told reporters
here.

Yeddurappa`s statement comes in the wake of a visit by a
team of rebels led by state unit BJP president KS Eswarappa
to Delhi last month, demanding change in leadership of
Yeddurappa who is facing allegations of corruption.

The Chief Minister said BJP general secretary Dharmendra
Pradhan, in-charge of party affairs in Karnataka, would be
visiting the city next week and no political significance
should be attached to it.

Pradhan would discuss issues concerning strengthening of
the party, Yeddyurappa said.

Meanwhile, state unit BJP president KS Eswarappa met RSS
leader Mangesh Bende at Hubli and held discussions.

"Eswarappa discussed issues concerning BJP and not on
dissidence," Prahallad Joshi, MP told reporters.

When rebel team visited Delhi last month the BJP high
command told them to work for the success of party candidates
in the by-poll held on April 9 in three Assembly
constituencies.

The party high command had promised to look into their
grievances after the elections.
