Not many bigwigs to share dais with BSY at Haveri

Bangalore: Nov 25, 2012 DH News Service

He will be the lone BJP legislator to submit his resignation

When B S Yeddyurappa announces the birth of his party - KJP - formally on December 9 in Haveri, he will not be sharing the dais with political heavyweights.

When he submits his resignation as MLA to the Assembly Speaker on November 30, he will be the lone BJP legislator to do so.

On November 30, Yeddyurappa will address his followers and KJP party workers around 10.30 am at Freedom Park in Bangalore.

Later, he is scheduled to go in a padayatra from the Park to Vidhana Soudha to meet the Speaker and submit his resignation. On the way, he will garland the statues of Mahatma Gandhi and Basaveshwara. The party has already printed pamphlets to be distributed among the public.


KJP president Dhananjay Kumar told Deccan Herald on Saturday that by noon, Yeddyurappa would meet the Speaker. No other BJP legislators would resign as the KJP did not want the BJP government to be disturbed or destabilised, he said.

Preparations are in full swing by the KJP for the Haveri convention. To send a message that his party is ‘secular,’ Yeddyurappa, is likely to be seated with Mohammed Nazeer, formerly with the JD(U) and Sebastian, a coffee planter from Chikmagalur, Nagaraj Malladi, formerly with BJP SC Morcha, besides Dh­a­n­anjay Kumar, K H Srinivas, former minister, M D Lakshminarayan, MLC (nominated), and Madan Patel, formerly with the BJP.

The lone woman to be on the stage is Shakuntala Beldale of Bidar, who is the president of the State Co-operative Federation. All 16 office-bearers of the party are going to be on the stage. Reporters from outside Karnataka too will be invited to the convention.

Kumar said the convention will begin around 11 am and will go on till 2.30 pm. Yeddyurappa will reach Haveri on December 8 itself. S M Hegde, media advisor to late chief minister Gundu Rao, is giving final touches to Yeddyurappa’s speech copy.

Kumar said that on Sunday, former JD(S) legislator Vishwanath will join the KJP. Also, a good number of JD(S) elected members of local bodies will join the party, he said.
