RSS, BJP top brass work out survival strategies

Bangalore:Jan 26, 2013 DH News Service

 Top State BJP leaders and RSS functionaries met in Bangalore to work out strategies to ensure the survival of the Government and also modalities for sailing through the budget session of the Legislature.

The meeting, the first after the ‘resignation episode’ by 13 legislators, including two ministers owning allegiance to B S Yeddyurappa, held at the State RSS headquarters, was attended by Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, party State president K S Eshwarappa, national general secretary Ananth Kumar, organisation secretary Santhosh, among others.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Eshwarappa said the meeting discussed the resignation episode threadbare.

“The MLAs who have identified with Yeddyurappa are in a dilemma. They do not want to dislodge the Government. Number-wise, we are safe. But we are keeping a close watch on the situation,” Eshwarappa said.


Sources said the party has already approached the five independent legislators (one-time ministers in the present government) and sought their support.

The party is also in touch with some of the MLAs who were wavering towards Yeddyurappa urging them not to resign, the sources added.
