Ant fighting against elephant, Eshwarappa mocks at KJP

Deputy Chief Minister K S Eshwarappa expressed confidence over his party completing the full term in governance. He added that no political parties can harm BJP against continuing in administration.

Speaking to media persons on the sidelines of his arrival to attend a religious programme in Brahmavar on Wednesday, the Deputy CM said it was an impossible task for the leaders like Nehru and Indira Gandhi to depose the political fame and power strategy of BJP.  They proved to be utter failure in their budge to defame BJP.

In this backdrop, how can one expect small political parties like KJP to damage the esteem of BJP, he questioned. "It is as if an ant fighting against elephant. There are lots of deadlines offered till date by KJP, however nothing proved to be genuine," he ridiculed.

Heavily coming down on Haveri MLA Nehru Olekar and Harihara MLA B P Harish, the Deputy CM said he would rather prefer silence against their futile allegations against himself.

He has hordes of responsibilities to deal with. He also said that former Minister Halappa should have called Yeddyurappa as the most corrupt instead of naming him.

He said the party leaders will discuss and decide over selecting the State BJP President shortly. He said he is in constant touch with Chief Minister Jagdish Shettar over the issue of the resignation by ministers Shobha Karandlaje and C M Udasi, he added.

BJP learnt lesson

Meanwhile, speaking after inaugurating various development programmes at Sullia on Wednesday, Eshwarappa said that the BJP-led State government has been facing the problems from day one. It has overcome all the problems and given good administration to the people.

Stating that the BJP has learnt a lesson after the elections, he said that the BJP give tickets in the forthcoming Assembly elections, to only those who have been unanimously selected by BJP workers.

“In the last four and half years, the State government has given sites to the poor. It has solved the row over Kumki land. About four lakh poor will be benefited from Kumki rights,” he said and added that 1,340 surveyors will be appointed for surveying the Kumki land.

The licensed surveyors will be paid Rs 1,000 from the existing Rs 300, for carrying out survey. The salary of the Village Assistants will be hiked to Rs 7,500 from Rs 3,500.

Eshwarappa said that a sum of Rs 35 crore each has been earmarked for development of rural roads in 224 constituencies. MLA S Angara will preside over the programme.
