Yeddyurappa resorting to blackmail: Siddaramaiah
Hubli: Opposition Congress leader in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah on Sunday charged former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa with resorting to blackmail tactics in a bid to return to power and constantly shifting his stand on various issues.
"Yeddyurappa has been resorting to blackmail tactics for some time now in his bid to return to power. The stand that he takes today is not there tomorrow," he told reporters here.
Siddaramaiah said Yeddyurappa never expected his loyalist D V Sadananda Gowda to assert himself after his exit and has been pressurising the party to make him either Chief Minister or state BJP unit chief.
Gowda, considered a Yeddyurappa loyalist, replaced his predecessor, who was made to quit by the BJP central leadership after he was indicted in the Lokayukta report on illegal mining, but is now trying to come out of his shadow.
Yeddyurappa was rebuffed by party chief Nitin Gadkari last month when he ruled out any change in leadership of the Chief Minister.
