Reddys seethe over CM's moves

The Reddys are apparently more concerned about the possible changes in their portfolios during the reshuffle. It is said that the party high command in Delhi has expressed its surprise with the State leaders, as to how one family (meaning the Reddys) has been allowed to keep two important ministerial ports besides allowing one of the Reddy brothers to be the KMF chairman.

Janardhana Reddy and Karunakara Reddy have warned that they will not be mute spectators if the Chief Minister does not put off the reshuffle. They also lent support to the three ministers who were sacked by the Chief Minister. Shivanagouda Nayak, Goolihatti Shekhar (Independent) and Aravind Limbavali spent the day with the Reddy brothers.

“Reshuffle should not be done till it is discussed in the committee. We have already brought the issue to the notice of the party leadership in Delhi, including Sushma Swaraj,” said Revenue Minister Karunakara Reddy.

Dropping ministers from the Cabinet, who have supported the Government as independent MLAs would amount to betrayal, said Tourism Minister Janardhana Reddy. However, Yeddyurappa said he would be holding a meeting with the Reddy brothers and resolve the issue.
