BJP, BSY put up united front

Bangalore, July 15, 2013 DHNS:
B S Yeddyurappa

Efforts to bring back Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) founder B S Yeddyurappa to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have not yielded any result.

However, as a prelude to this, the BJP, KJP and Badava Shramika Raitha Congress (BSR Congress) have begun putting up a united front in the ongoing legislative Assembly session to take on the ruling Congress.

The development also gives sufficient hint that there is a possibility of reunion before the Lok Sabha elections.

Take on govt together

The three parties on Monday decided to take on the government together, particularly if the earlier BJP ministry comes under attack in the Assembly.

The initiative has been taken by BJP leaders, who have taken exception to the Congress resorting to the use of forums like the governor’s address to the joint session and the budget document to attack the previous BJP regime.

Monday’s development is being viewed by political observers as a step forward in the three parties getting closer ahead of the Lok Sabha elections to protect each other's political interests. The BJP has 40 members in the Assembly, the KJP six and the BSR Congress four. The Janata Dal-Secular, which too has 40 seats in the Assembly, got the position of the principal opposition party as it clocked a higher vote share.

A meeting on Monday morning attended by senior leaders, including former chief minister Jagadish Shettar, former speaker K G Bopaiah and former minister D N Jeevaraj, among others, felt that the three parties should take on the government together.

It is learnt that KJP president B S Yeddyurappa and BSR Congress president B Sriramulu agreed with BJP leaders’ view when it was communicated to them.
