BJP top brass summons Yeddyurappa, Eshwarappa

At last, the BJP central leadership has taken note of the embarrassment caused by the tiff between state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa and senior leader K S Eshwarappa.

BJP national president Amit Shah has summoned the leaders to the national capital on Friday. A source in the party said a meeting has been scheduled at Shah’s residence in New Delhi at 7 pm on Friday where the issue will be discussed at length.

Senior party functionaries Ram Lal, B L Santosh and P Muralidhar Rao will also be attending the meeting. Eshwarappa has been associating himself with the Sangolli Rayanna Brigade, a forum of OBCs and Dalits, much to the chagrin of Yeddyurappa.
 
Eshwarappa is participating in a convention of the Brigade in Kudalasangama, Bagalkot district, on Thursday despite Yeddyurappa’s diktat that no party functionary should attend the event. The rift between the two leaders reached a flashpoint recently after Yeddyurappa warned that action will be taken against those associating with the Brigade.
