Could have been more aggressive against govt, Shah tells State BJP leaders

Pulling up the Karnataka BJP leaders for their failure to put up an aggressive fight against the Congress-led government in the State, the party top brass has directed them to expose the ‘misdeeds’ of the Siddaramaiah government by organising rallies.

BJP national president Amit Shah, who chaired a meeting of senior leaders of the party from Karnataka here late on Tuesday night, also expressed his unha-ppiness over the State leaders not taking up some of the major issues like the sting operation against Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya and the chief minister’s costly watch row to their logical end, sources told Deccan Herald.

The sources said Shah had also questioned the State leaders why they were not putting up an aggressive fight against the government in even issues such as the controversy over the transfer of DySP Anupama Shenoy, the lottery scam, encroachments of government land by the ruling party leaders and corruption in the Lokayukta office.

With the local bodies’ poll results indicating an anti-incumbency wave against the Siddaramaiah-led government, the leaders must exploit the situation by organising a public movement across the State, Shah said.

Senior leaders of the party, including State unit chief Pralhad Joshi, Union Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, Union Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar, former chief minster B S Yeddyurappa and K S Eshwarappa were present at the meeting.
