Yeddyurappa`s departure will have no impact on BJP govt: Ashok
Belgaum: Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister R Ashok on Friday said former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa`s departure would have no bearing on BJP government and KJP does not have any future.
"Yeddyurappa`s departure will not make any impact on BJP government and Karnataka Janata Party has no future," Ashok told reporters here.
Taking an indirect swipe at Yeddyurappa, Ashok said the BJP is a national party and not built by an individual. "It is a party built by party workers," he said.
BJP leaders did their best to retain Yeddyurappa in the party, Ashok said and admitted his contribution to the growth of BJP in Karnataka.
Replying to a query on whether he will refuse permission to Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti to hold `Maha Melava` on December 5, Ashok said he would discuss the issue with Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar.
The MES has planned to hold `Maha Melava` opposing Karnataka government’s decision to hold winter session of the assembly in Belgaum.
According to MES leaders, no session should be held until the Supreme Court decides on Karnataka-Maharashtra border dispute.
