Shobha says she is ready to quit if party asks her

High command has not yet sought resignation from RDPR minister

Shobha says she is ready to quit if party asks her



However, she hastened to add that the party central leadership has not sought her resignation. Removal of Shobha Karandlaje from the Cabinet has been one of the main demands of the Reddy camp.
The Reddy faction had alleged that she was functioning as a “super CM” and interfered in the affairs of other departments. Shobha Karandlaje has refuted the allegations time and again.

Karandlaje’s indication to the media that she was willing to sacrifice her ministerial berth is being interpreted in political circles as Yeddyurappa having bowed down to one of the demands of the Reddy faction to save his government.

Meanwhile, Yeddyurappa’s cabinet colleagues continued to take turns to declare their loyalty to his leadership.  The move is dubbed as a strategy  to built pressure on the party high command to continue Yeddyurappa as the CM and not to yield to the Reddys’ demand for a change in leadership.

BSY gets support
Ministers C M Udasi, Govind Karjol and Aravind Limbavali held a press conference onThursday and said Yeddyurappa is their undisputed leader.

The BJP came to power after projecting Yeddyurappa as the CM candidate in the 2008 Assembly elections.

So he has to remain Chief Minister  for the full term of five years and fulfil all promises made to people of the state, the ministers added.

On Wednesday, Ministers Halappa, Bache Gowda and Umesh Katti had spoken on the same lines.
In another damage control move, Medical Education Minister Ramachandra Gowda said cabinet ministers will return to Vidhana Soudha on Friday morning and resume routine official work, brushing aside allegation made by the opposition that development had come to a standstill in the state.
