Yeddyurappa plans rath yatra

“Majority of the programmes implemented during my tenure have not reached people due to lack of information and publicity. I will create public awareness on all such schemes through the rath yatra,” Yeddyurappa said here on Sunday.

He was speaking to reporters after inaugurating Hanagal Kumareshwara dining hall. The objective of the rath yatra is also to strengthen the BJP so that the party secures absolute majority in the next Assembly elections. A final decision on the yatra would be taken in a meeting of legislators on October 10. The yatra would tour the State for a period of three months, he said.

Terming the Lokayukta report on illegal mining as ‘discriminatory,’ Yeddyurappa said while the interim report mentioned former chief minister N Dharam Singh, the name was replaced with that of his in the final report.

He said he had penned a book to expose the truths on the Lokayukta report and the book would be released in a few days.

Speaking at a felicitation programme in Bhadravathi, Yeddyurappa said the court hearing on October 3 would decide his future.

“God only knows whether my bail plea will be considered or not,” Yeddyurappa said.

Yeddyurappa said he relinquished power happily as he had enjoyed the post of chief minister for three years.

The former chief minister   claimed that he resigned from the post as a loyal party worker, heeding directions of the leaders.
