BJP High Command has become low command in front of Yeddyurappa.

Congress leader

Our party State president H D Kumaraswamy has evidence of Yeddyurappa tapping phone conversations of the RSS leaders. He will release the documents at an apt time.

Basavaraj Patil Yatnal,
JD(S) leader

Let Yeddyurappa nominate whoever he wants, including Shobha Karandlaje to the chief minister’s post. We all will support him.

BP Harish,

I have been in active politics for nearly two decades and my indictment in the Lokayukta report has indeed hurt me. However, if the high command advises me to resign, I will comply with the same. Power is not eternal and we have to come to terms with it. I will be able to arrive at a decision, once I go through the entire report. It is important to ensure that the party’s image does not get dented, and all the BJP members are working towards it.

B Sriramulu,
Health Minister

I could not hold the press conference today as planned, because I don’t have the entire Lokayukta report with me. I presently have with me only 460 pages of the Lokayukta’s recommendations. Though I have applied under the RTI, I have not been made available the remaining 9,000 pages of the report. I will hold the press conference once I get the entire report on Monday. We are like children of Yeddyurappa. We love him and respect him. However, I am bound by my high command’s decision.

G Janardhana Reddy,
Tourism Minister

All the 11 disqualified MLAs are bound by the high command’s verdict. We have each met the central leaders and conveyed our opinion. No, we haven’t placed any demands.

Balachandra Jarkiholi,

The crisis is on the verge of being defused. Yeddyurappa will surely resign tomorrow.

V S Acharya,
Higher Education Minister
