Refrain from rallies: BSY to supporters
Bangalore: Former Karnataka chief minister B
S Yeddyurappa on Saturday asked his supporters to refrain from
organising rallies in his support till he was cleared by the
court in the corruption cases against him.
"Several of my supporters are keen on staging rallies
expressing support to me. But I told them to wait till my name
is cleared from graft cases," he told a delegation of weavers
and backward class leaders who called on him here.
The supporters of the former chief minister, facing charges
of irregularities in denotification of government lands, had
planned a rally in the city on November 20.
Yeddyurappa, who was recently released on bail, said he
bowed to the decision of BJP high command and RSS leaders and
quit the chief minister`s post, despite commanding support of
70 MLAs out of 120 in the state.
"I don`t want to demoralise my supporters by narrating
everything I underwent. But I am overwhelmed about the huge
support I received after I came out of the jail", he said.
Yeddyurappa said he would visit Hubli tomorrow as part of
his efforts to strengthen the party in the state.
