Yeddyurappa plans to visit rebel MLAs' constituencies

Laying the foundation stone for the construction of a new village at Kotya near Bijapur, he said that he would supervise and restart the developmental works that had come to a standstill in those constituencies.

The chief minister said that he would visit Delhi soon to meet the party central leadership and apprise them of his good work as the chief minister and added that he was certain of an amicable solution to the  political crisis.

He parried a question about dropping Shobha Karandlaje from the ministry by bowing to the pressure of the breakaway group and gave a clean chit to MP Ananth Kumar, who was alleged to have masterminded the crisis.
Yeddyurappa also said that he would invite the Prime Minister to the State to take stock of the post-deluge situation  and the  works undertaken by the government.
Speaking to reporters at the Jindal airport in Bellary, he said that difference of opinion is normal in a ruling party and it existed even during the tenure of H D Deve Gowda, J H Patel and S M Krishna.

He said political differences should not bring development to a standstill and called upon the MLAs at the resorts at Hyderabad and Goa to rush back to their constituencies and carry on with the relief work.

He said that the appointment of Speaker Jadagish Shettar as a minister was not in has hands but in the hands of senior party leaders. “Shettar should know this reality instead of  unnecessarily creating problems,” he remarked.
