Rayanna Brigade will bring BJP back to power: KSE

Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council K S Eshwarappa has said the Sangolli Rayanna Brigade would work to bring the BJP back to power in the state.

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, he said B S Yeddyurappa would be the chief minister if the BJP came to power. Yeddyurappa will also inaugurate the brigade.

Eshwarappa said he attended a meeting of leaders from backward classes, because they offered support to the BJP.

“I am an RSS worker and I will never defect. Leaders of backward classes called a meeting saying they were betrayed by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. I have put conditions for Sangolli Rayanna Brigade to support the BJP in polls, to invite only BJP leaders to its programmes, and to mention the name of BJP in its banners,” Eshwarappa said.

“I do not know why Yeddyurappa is opposing my move regarding the Sangolli Rayanna Brigade. I will discuss with him, to clear the confusion,” he said.

Eshwarappa reportedly met BJP and RSS leaders here but no details were made available.
