Convener of the Dharwad Rural district unit of the Karnataka Janata Paksha C.M. Nimbannavar has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of being vindictive and not releasing funds to constituencies of those MLAs who were identified with the KJP.

Speaking to presspersons here on Monday, Mr. Nimbannavar said “vengeance” politics by the BJP was the major reason for the MLAs coming out in support of the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa.

When asked why MLAs with leanings towards KJP were reluctant to resign from their posts in the Cabinet, he blamed this on “technical reasons”.

Mr. Nimbannavar claimed that as the State government didn’t have the required strength to present the budget and get it passed, it should not present it.

Convention

Mr. Nimbannavar said a constituency-level convention of KJP workers would be held at Kalaghatagi on February 6.

Mr. Yeddyurappa would address the meet and over 30,000 people were expected to participate, he said.

The former Minister Jabbar Khan Honnalli and the former MLA Ashok Katwe were present at the press conference.
