Rebels were studying rural development in AP!

RenukacharyaHe along with 40 other MLAs had been in a star hotel in Hyderabad for the past 10 days.

Speaking to a private TV channel over phone, Renukacharya said the rebel group was satisfied and would continue under the leadership of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa.

Reacting to a question, he said he and his friends had not been to Hyderabad to enjoy, but to study rural development issues in Andhra Pradesh.

“The neighbouring State has achieved more in rural development. We interacted with many officials and ministers during our stay in Hyderabad. Every morning we used to visit villages nearby,” he said.

He reiterated that he still had confidence in Yeddyurappa. "Our demand was that he (CM) should change his style of functioning. After meetings in Delhi he has agreed to do so," he said.

He refused to comment, when asked about the understanding between the high command and Yeddyurappa in resolving the crisis. He said, he and his friends would return to Karnataka by Monday.
