BANGALORE: Upping the ante against his successor D V Sadananda Gowda, former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday reiterated the demand for convening of the BJP legislature party meeting at the earliest.
Speaking to reporters, Yeddyurappa insisted that it should be organised at the earliest.“In the past five months,there has been no legislature party meeting. Why is there no meeting?” he questioned.
On the resignation of ministers of his camp Yeddyurappa said,”It is true that a few ministers and MLAs have quit and handed over their resignations to me. They are angry with the treatment meted out to them by the CM.” The reason for their anger, according to Yeddyurappa, was the fact that the CM wrote to national BJP president Nitin Gadkari seeking disciplinary action against them because they were close to Yeddyurappa. Nine ministers and 15 MLAs resignation letters on May 12 and more are likely to follow by Monday he claimed.
