BJP leadership urged to act against Yeddyurappa's MP son

Shimoga: Karnataka BJP President K S Eshwarappa today said the party's central leadership has been urged to take "appropriate action" against B Y Raghavendra, MP, for his close association with Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP) led by his father B S Yeddyurappa.

"I don't have powers to take action myself. Hence we have urged the central leadership take action against Raghavendra for associating himself with KJP," he told reporters here.

Eshwarappa said Speaker K G Bopaiah would examine the issue of resignation of 13 BJP MLAs. "Governor H R Bhardwaj has stated that the government is safe," he said.
