BSY declares war against JD(S)

“Only BJP and Congress should remain in the State. A person like Deve Gowda, who deceived the people in the worst ever manner, cannot shake me,” he said, speaking with the media persons at Hubli airport, after arriving from New Delhi by a special flight.

Declaring that his main objective now was to “decimate “ the JD(S) in the State, Yeddyurappa challenged the former Prime Minister, remarking: “I will take sanyas from politics, if I (if it proved that) have done any wrong in the last two years”.

The Chief Minister charged Deve Gowda with trying to negotiate with some  BJP MPs, offering friendship to the BJP in the State if he (Yeddyurappa) was removed as Chief Minister. Visibly seething, the Chief Minister burst out that the terms of reference of the judicial inquiry by a retired Supreme Court judge that he intended to set would now cover all land scams extending to the period when Gowda was chief Minister.

The inquiry would be set up in two days and would be asked to submit its report in six months, Yeddyurappa said.

“On Monday, I will visit Delhi again, and hand over the details of land scams by Gowda and his son to our MPs, so that the issue could be discussed in Parliament,” he said.

‘I will continue as CM’

“Why should I resign, when I have not committed any mistake?” the Chief Minister shot back, when mediapersons asked him about the JD(S) demand that he step down before the judicial inquiry got going, in order to ensure its fairness.

“Yesterday, Central BJP leaders sought details about recent developments in the State, and I have given them. I will be the chief minister for next two-and-a-half years also, and we are laying a strong foundation for keeping BJP in power in the State for next 20 years,” Yeddyurappa said, adding that there was no internal strife in the State BJP.

“Along with JD(S), some Congress leaders are also levelling false allegations against the government. My son has already surrendered the BDA site. Like other MPs and MLAs, a site was allotted to him also. My family members have been allotted a total of six acres of land for setting up industries, at a place which is 50 km away from Bangalore. If I intervened, I could have allotted land very close the City,” he reiterated.
