BSY meets Krishna, invites him to join BJP

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa on Monday met former chief minister S M Krishna at the latter’s residence in Bengaluru and invited him to join the saffron fold.

Krishna had resigned from the primary membership of the Congress in January this year stating that the party had neglected him, citing his old age.

Yeddyurappa told reporters, “BJP today extended a formal invite to Krishna to join the party. I am confident he will oblige soon.” Krishna’s reaction could not be obtained as he did not speak to the media.

Former deputy chief minister R Ashoka, who accompanied Yeddyurappa, said the Congress had neglected Krishna though he had served the party for more than three decades. “His entry will strengthen BJP,” he said.

The Congress high command did not make any effort to convince Krishna to stay back. KPCC working president Dinesh Gundu Rao had even ridiculed BJP for trying to woo Krishna.
