Ex-CM sorry for remark against BJP stalwart

Davangere, Nov 19, 2012, DHNS:

Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa (in pic) regretted on Monday for his controversial remarks against BJP national leader L K Advani.

He said he had no intention to raise slogans against Advani at Saturday’s function at Nyamathi. Yeddyurappa said it was just a slip of the tongue, while taking potshots at his bete noire MP Ananthkumar.

‘Let them commit suicide’

He said he had already apologised for the remarks. If the BJP government wants to commit suicide, so be it, a disgruntled Yeddyurappa said.

Yeddyurappa said he had no intention to bring down the BJP government, but if they want to bring it upon themselves, he could not do much.

“Eshwarappa need not speak in riddles. Let them recommend dissolution of the Assembly and go for early elections. Those identifying with me are being threatened with disciplinary action. Why didn’t they act against Sriramulu’s men?” the former chief minister said.

Yeddyurappa said he would not pressure anyone to attend the meeting Haveri next month, where he is launching a new party. Everyone was free to attend and if none came, he would give opportunity to new faces, he said.

The former chief minister invited Davangere BJP MP G M Siddeshwara to join his party.
