Mr. Shettar said that he was visiting Delhi just to meet party’s new national president Rajnath Singh who has been elevated to the post for the second time

Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar who left for New Delhi by a special flight from Hubli on Sunday evening has clarified that there was nothing “political” about it, and termed it a courtesy visit.

Speaking to presspersons on the sidelines of the State-level Korama Koracha community convention in Hubli on Sunday, Mr. Shettar said that he was visiting Delhi just to meet party’s new national president Rajnath Singh who has been elevated to the post for the second time. “I am going to Delhi only to meet and greet my party’s new chief Mr. Rajnath Singh”, he said.

However, at a time when the political situation in the State has become volatile with 13 legislators ready with the resignation letters and few more expected to follow suit, Mr. Shettar is likely to discuss the future course to be followed with regard to the future of the first BJP government in south India.

Reiterating that there was no hindrance for him to present the State Budget on February 8 despite the threat of 13 legislators resigning, Mr. Shettar said that he was confident that none of the legislators would forsake the party.

To a query on whether the Speaker would be available at his office in Bangalore on Monday to receive the resignation letters of the 13 legislators, Mr Shettar asked the reporters to “just wait and watch”.
