Addressing the media at Devagiri near Haveri he said the Opposition parties seem to have lost faith in Democracy. Hence they are trying to topple a democratically-elected people’s government through dubious means.
He also questioned the Opposition parties’ might to tackle the BJP in the upcoming Zilla Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat elections. Instead of indulging in devious activities towards the government they should function as a responsible and mature Opposition, he added.
A cold war is being waged between the original and migrant leaders in the Congress. The party is divided into several groups headed by Mallikarjun Kharge, Siddaramaiah, Veerappa Moily, D K Shivakumar and others.
As a majority of leaders in the Congress are those who have defected from other parties, they have no moral right to talk about defection, he observed.
Accusing the JD(S) led by the father-son duo of creating unnecessary hurdles in the functioning of the government, thereby, affecting the development projects in the State, Yeddyurappa said he would initiate a detailed probe into the land grab scam in and around Bangalore and thus unravel their true colours.
Inquiry by retd judge
A final decision about inquiry into the CD scam and resort politics by a retired judge will be taken soon, he added.
However, Yeddyurappa declined to answer about the probe sought by H D Kumaraswamy into the pact entered into between the BJP and the independents during the formation of the government.
In a week’s time a compendium of statistics about the BJP government’s two- and-a -half year rule will be relased and handed over to the Opposition leaders, legislator and MPs.
District In-charge Minister C M Udasi, Water Resources Minister Basavaraj Bommai, MP Shivakumar Udasi, MLA Nehru Olekar, MLC Shivaraj Sajjanar and others were present at the press conference.
