Narendra Modi repaying debt to Yedyurappa, alleges Congress

Congress today alleged that Chief Minister Narendra Modi will address only one public rally in poll-bound Karnataka as he was indebted to Karnataka Janata Party chief B S Yedyurappa, who had supported his candidature for the post of Prime Minister.

"Karnataka's former Chief Minister B S Yedyurappa had pledged his support to Modi for the Prime Minister's post and so Modi is repaying his debt to Yedyurappa by addressing just a single public rally in the state," Gujarat Congress spokesperson Jayrajsinh Parmar today said in a statement.

"At a BJP national executive council meeting, Yedyurappa had said that Narendra Modi was his first choice as a Prime Ministerial candidate and openly supported him. Modi is repaying his debt to Yedyurappa by addressing just a single public rally in the state," Parmar claimed.

Reports from Karnataka said that Modi will address his first public meeting in that state on Sunday, which might be the only rally he would address in the poll-bound state.

During BJP's foundation day celebrations here on April 6, Modi had made tall claims to work for party and to remain faithful to the party, Parmar claimed.

"But, now Narendra Modi is not going to Karnataka for his party seeing BJP's fragile situation over there," he said, adding, Modi did not want to spoil relations with Yedyurappa.

Parmar said that by not campaigning aggressively in Karnataka for the BJP, he was not doing justice to the party and was putting national president Rajnath Singh in a pitiable position.
