Three BJP MPs from State to boycott meet

Lok Sabha MPs Ramesh Jigajinagi and Gaddigoudar and Rajya Sabha member K B Shanappa are likely to be absent from the meet, which will be inaugurated by the party national president Rajnath Singh.

The MPs, who were not available for comment, are said to be upset over the style of functioning of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and some of his ministerial colleagues. They are said to have already conveyed their displeasure against the CM to the party high command, including Opposition Leader L K Advani, and Singh.

The boycott by the MPs comes close on the heels of signs of rebellion displayed by some of the Cabinet ministers, including Karunakara Reddy and his brother Janardhana Reddy and BJP MLAs, against the CM. They were later pacified by the leadership. The state executive meet will debate organisational issues and discuss how to face the August 18 Assembly byelections.
