Chief Minister sobs for ditching Shobha, Baligar

Apologises to the flood victims

The chief minister, who extended his Delhi tour at the behest of the party central leadership to find a solutions to the political crisis, turned misty eyed while answering questions on the demand for his removal by the dissidents.

“For my selfish ends, I was forced to ditch those who were my trusted people. Be it Shobha  (Karandlaje) or (V P) Baligar. Even god will not not forgive me for this,” he said.

Forced to do

“Though I was not interested in dropping  these people (Shoba and Baligar), I was forced to do, as advised by the elders, to save my chair,” he said.

“I should not have been distracted. I hope god will forgive me," the chief minister said after failing to control his emotions.

Tired with the political turmoil, the chief minister in a choked voice wondered  what wrong he had done to find himself in such a situation , particularly when large parts of North Karnataka were devastated by floods and around a million people waiting for over a month now for rehabilitation.

“I apologise to the flood victims. When they are facing so many problems, we should not not have wasted time on this crisis,” he told a Kannada channel. Yeddyurappa blamed the dissidents for shifting his focus from relief work to the political crisis.

Amidst hectic schedule, the chief minister visited the Vaishnodevi temple in Jammu and offered prayers in the hill shrine.  He also visited the Raj Ghat and paid floral tributes to the Samadhi.
