KJP will not make an impact: DVS

Udupi, Nov 18, 2012, DHNS:

Former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said the Karnataka Janata Party (KJP), to be floated by another former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, will not have any effect on the State’s political scenario.

Addressing reporters here, Gowda said that as the coastal region was a stronghold of the BJP, that it was irrelevant to analyse the impact of the KJP in the region.

“We respect Yeddyurappa for his commendable organisational skill and leadership qualities.
We don’t have any qualms against him. The political history demonstrates what had happened to those who had quit the party, which has high moral values. It will not be easy for him to taste success by staying away from the BJP. The person who has moved out also knows the path to return. There are no hurdles if he wishes to stay back with us,” he said.

“When political parties all over the country were at cross roads, it was inevitable for the BJP to provide good governance in the state. In this situation, Yeddyurappa should have been with the BJP and led from the front,” he remarked.

The meeting of the BJP leaders held in Bangalore on Saturday discussed steps to prevent Yeddyurappa from holding the proposed KJP rally in Haveri on December 9.

BJP leaders and workers have assured the leadership that they will not shift their loyalty and stay away from the Haveri rally.

The supporters of Yeddyurappa, who attended the Saturday’s meeting, will also make efforts to persuade him to stay back in the BJP, Gowda said. There were grim chances of an early election to the Assembly, he added.
