DVS to complete term as BJP chief

He held a marathon meeting on Sunday in Bangalore and on Monday and met the party national president Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley, who is in-charge of party affairs of State.
When contacted by Deccan Herald, Gowda said he would not like to comment anything on his reported decision to quit the post but said, “Yes. I had recently told Rajnath Singh that there was no point in continuing as the president if I cannot take action against those who violate the party norms”.

He further said, “My term will conclude in November. Later I will not be continuing”. As per the party constitution, the term of a state president is for three years. He, if wishes, can contest or come back only after three years. Sources in the party said that Gowda met some Sangh Parivar seniors and BJP leaders, including Minister Eshwarappa, who pressurised him to continue as president.

D S Ramakrishna, zonal secretary, RSS, Karnataka South has stated that RSS has not suggested to either leaders who are running the government or BJP leaders in administrative matters. Referring to reports in a section of the media that RSS has given direction to the CM to take action against dissidents, he said that RSS never interferes in administrative matters.
