President of newly launched Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP) and former MP V Dhananjay Kumar on Sunday dared opposition Congress party to pull down the BJP government in the State.
Addressing a gathering of youth leaders of the party at the maiden meeting in Mysore, Dhananjay Kumar who heads the party on behalf of beleaguered BJP strongman and former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa made a mockery of the recent protest rally by Congress party in Bangalore.
“The opposition leader Siddaramaiah was no less than Vatal Nagaraj, a former MLA who is known for staging demonstration for the sake of publicity,” chided Dhananjay Kumar.
If Siddaramaiah is really a man of calibre, he should prove his mettle by pulling down the government as he had been terming the government as dead.
He also termed the eagerness of Congress party to dethrone the government led by saffron party as a conspiracy to impose president rule in the State.
If the president rule is imposed, Governor will be at the helm of affairs giving a chance for Congress to remote control, he alleged.
Kumar also dared BJP to act against the leaders who have been sending feelers to join KJP.
Yeddyurappa has been reiterating that he will be holding a mega convention of the new party on December 9 in Haveri. Two each of the MLAs and MPs of BJP have already identified with BSR Congress a party floated by another former BJP minister B Sriramulu.
“If the party was really disciplined, let the higher ups issue show cause notice to the leaders including Yeddyurappa,” challenged Kumar. He dubbed the recent visit of BJP Rajya Sabha member Arun Jaitley to the State to convince Yeddyurappa as a mere political stunt.
The national leaders too couldn’t digest the soaring popularity of Yeddyurappa and played all cards to ruffle him, he noted.
