Shettar confident of presenting budget

Bellary, Jan 24, 2013 DH News Service

Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar said on Wednesday that there was no threat to his government, following the resignation of some ministers and MLAs.

He exuded confidence that the BJP government would complete its term and that he would present the budget on February 8 as scheduled. The Governor would address the joint session of the legislature on February 4, he said.

He was speaking to reporters at the JSW Steel Company airport at Toranagal, en route Gulbarga. Shettar said he would soon take a decision on accepting the resignations of ministers C M Udasi and Shobha Karandlaje.


Reacting to reports that Minister S K Bellubbi had met former minister G Janardhana Reddy at the Chanchalaguda jail in Hyderabad, the chief minister said it was a personal visit by the minister.

Shettar made it clear that the BJP had not asked Bellubbi to request Reddy on its behalf to continue in the party. The BJP had nothing to do with Bellubbi’s frequent meetings with Reddy.

Shettar said a sub-committee of senior officials had been set up for the implementation of the schemes for the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, following the amendment to Article 371 of the Constitution. Priority would be given to the region in the budget itself, following a report of the sub-committee. 

Ready to quit: Nirani

Minister Murugesh Nirani said he was ready to resign if former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa asked him to do so. Nirani told reporters at Toranagal that he would put in his papers after discussing with people of his constituency, if Yeddyurappa directs him to resign.
