Energy Minister D K Shivakumar on Tuesday said that though he was opposed to the BJP ideology, he had soft corner for State BJP President B S Yeddyurappa. 

“The BJP local leaders are seeking votes in Yeddyurappa’s name in Shivamogga and Sriramulu’s name in Ballari. They have forgotten Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Yeddyurappa and Sriramulu are responsible for bypolls as they are power-hungry,” he told reporters.

Shivakumar said that people were disappointed with the Centre as it failed to control the price rise of essential commodities. The voters would support the Congress and JD(S) in the bypolls.
