Yeddyurappa confident of forming govt, says ex-minister

Speaking to DH from the resort near Gurgaon in Haryana, on Tuesday afternoon, the MLA said, it is not that it is impossible to topple the JD(S)-Congress coalition government. “But, as on Tuesday afternoon, nothing is concrete. If nothing happens by evening, it is over,” he said.

A former minister and present MLA from Mysuru region told DH that BJP state president and former CM B S Yeddyurappa is highly confident of forming a BJP government in the state, though he has his own doubts.

Speaking to DH from the resort near Gurgaon in Haryana on Tuesday afternoon, the MLA said, it is possible to topple the JD(S)-Congress coalition government. “But, as on Tuesday afternoon, nothing is concrete. If nothing happens by evening, it is over,” he said.

He said it is unfortunate that such things happen. “Yesterday, we had left for New Delhi in the noon. We had plans to visit the ailing seer of Siddaganga mutt Shivakumara Swami. But suddenly, we were diverted to the resort. Our routine is dull. The resort is in a village. Even if we go out, there is nothing. I am engaged in monitoring the pending and ongoing works in my constituency and district. Some of the MLAs are just chatting and are whiling away their time,” he said.

He said that the stay is comfortable, but confinement is difficult even under comforts. “It is unfortunate that the BJP could not come to power despite emerging as the single largest party. But, the hardships the MLAs have to undergo to come to power is worrisome. It is going to be tight rope balancing, even if Yeddyurappa becomes chief minister,” he said.
