BSY won't launch party: KSE

 State BJP president K S Eshwarappa said on Saturday that former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa would not quit the party as he knows the fate of leaders who have left the party in the past.

He was addressing a press conference, before inaugurating the BJP’s district office in the city.

Eshwarappa said he was confident that the former chief minister would not float a new party, given that former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Uma Bharati and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh had returned to the BJP, after quitting it when they were upset.

The State BJP chief said certain developments had hurt the former chief minister and he was only letting his frustration out by saying he would float a party.He said the party had talked Yeddyurappa out of plans to form a new party in the past and the same would happen this time too.

Eshwarappa claimed the followers of the former chief minister were misleading him and that he should stop listening to them.

He welcomed the efforts of some of his followers to retain him in the BJP. Eshwarappa advised party workers not to criticise any leader in public.

Eshwarappa said he had recommended to the party’s central leaders to take disciplinary action against Haveri MLA Nehru Olekar and Tumkur MP G S Basavaraju, who were talking lightly against the party and its leaders.
