Hegde fiasco a closed chapter, says Yeddyurappa

The controversy over the statement of Union Minister Anantkumar Hegde is a closed chapter, state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa has said.

Speaking to reporters at Kaidala in Tumakuru district on Monday, Yeddyurappa said that Hegde had sought apology in the Lok Sabha over his statement.

"Myself and party national president Amit Shah too have cautioned him against issuing controversial statements," he said. Hegde's statement has also hurt senior BJP leader
V Srinivas Prasad, Yeddyurappa added.

Yeddyurappa was in Kaidala to take part in Amarashilpi Jakanachari Day.

Hegde's statement about the need for changing the Constitution had drawn strong condemnation from various quarters.
