'State BJP has no wrongdoers'

State BJP president K S Eshwarappa said on Monday that there were no wrongdoers in the State unit of the party. He said those facing charges in the court of law could not be considered guilty. 

Eshwarappa was reacting to the statement of Ananth Kumar, the party’s national general secretary, that those facing graft charges would not be given any posts. He spoke to reporters at the party office here, where he took part in a party workers’ meeting ahead of the Legislative Council polls.

“I do not know in what context he has spoken. He must have made the statement in the backdrop of senior leader Bangaru Lakshman being sentenced in a bribery case,” he said. Eshwarappa expressed confidence that the party would win all the six seats of the Council that go to the polls shortly. 

“We have met each and every voter. The development works initiated by Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda and his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa will be a blessing for us. Teachers have been given facilities which no government provided in the last 60 years. The teachers are in favour of the BJP,” he said.
