‘Yeddyurappa’s remarks will not affect BJP’s poll performance’

Deputy Chief Minister K.S. Eshwarappa has said that statements of the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa will have no impact on the BJP’s performance in the next Assembly elections.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday after attending a private function, Mr. Eshwarappa said that in his enthusiasm to launch a new party, Mr. Yeddyurappa was making objectionable remarks about every leader of the BJP.

He would be forced to stop it after the people taught him a lesson in the next Assembly polls. “Although there are differences of opinion between BJP leaders and Mr. Yeddyurappa, he should not make remarks against national leader L.K. Advani, which has irked many loyal workers and leaders of the party,” he said.

Mr. Eshwarappa said that Mr. Yeddyurappa should not hold the convention of his party in Haveri on December 9 without resigning from the BJP. He should not show disregard for the party of which he was a part for decades.

To a question, Mr. Eshwarappa said that the party would not compromise on principles at any cost. It would take disciplinary action against legislators who attend the Haveri convention to be held in December, Mr. Eshwarappa said.
