BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa, on Wednesday, accused MLC Basavaraj Horatti of indulging in selfish politics over the separate Lingayat religion issue.

Addressing the gathering at a function here, he said Horatti was creating confusion through his statement that a few BJP legislators were also backing the demand for a separate Lingayat religion.

Yeddyurappa said he would abide by the stand of the Akhila Bharata Veerashaiva Mahasabha, the Siddaganga seer and other Veerashaiva pontiffs.

The former chief minister said BJP legislators were united. Veerashaiva and Lingayat were the same and that the Congress was bent upon dividing the community, in particular, and the society in general.
