Warring camps in touch with HDK

The CM’s camp is in touch with JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy, once a bete noir of Yeddyurappa, sources said. “Leaders of both the camps are in touch with me. Let us see how things turn out in the next two days,” Kumaraswamy stated.

The plan is that the CM’s faction would break away from that of the Reddys and would join hands with the JD(S) MLAs. But Yeddyurappa has to take care that the Reddy’s number does not cross beyond 37. With the support of 27 JD(S) MLAs, Yeddyurappa would be able to form a new government, sources explained."

Revenue Minister Karunakara Reddy reiterated that there was no question of any compromise on their demand for a leadership change and dubbed the party chief Rajnath Singh’s assertion that Yeddyurappa will continue as the CM, as “the media creation”.
Meanwhile, it has been a one-way traffic towards Delhi for a majority of the state MLAs and leaders, including that of opposition Congress and JD(S). Leaders including Congress leaders R V Deshpande and D K Shivakumar, JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy, Energy Minister K S Eshwarappa, besides the Reddy and the CM’s factions are camping in the national capital.

Rebel evidence
The Reddy brothers stepped up their efforts to oust the CM by handing over CDs containing opinions of rebel MLAs to the party national leaders. Views of the MLAs  have been recorded and dispatched to Delhi. The Reddys resorted to recording the opinion in view of the high command’s strict direction not to parade MLAs. Reddys claim to have the support of 63 MLAs.
