Backing state BJP President B S Yeddyurappa’s move in selecting office bearers ahead of the next assembly elections slated for 2018, BJP state spokesperson G Madhusudhan said no one need to teach a lesson to Yeddyurappa on how to unite the party party. “Yeddyurappa is a capable person and knows how to strengthen the party ahead of the next assembly elections. He knows everything about state politics like JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda. Yeddyurappa and Gowda are the only two politicians from the state who have the ability to get information about developments in all the political parties. Yeddyurappa doesn’t need a lesson,” he said.
Madhusudhan’s statement’s comes in the wake of senior party colleague and opposition leader K S Eshwarappa publicly criticising Yeddyurappa’s unilateral decision to choose office bearers. A few days’ back, had Eshwarappa alleged that Yeddyurappa was sidelining original BJP candidates, while showing soft corner to Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) supporters.
Madhusudhan, who was denied a party ticket for the recently held legislative council election for south graduates’ constituency, said, “There are many leaders in the party who spread wrong opinion about me which led to my not getting the ticket. In politics, those who are very strong only remain and the rest perish. Internal conflicts in the party cost me the ticket. I don’t want to blame the party or any leaders separately.”
Responding to internal squabbling in the ruling Congress, he said though there are some issues, it will not affect the party. “Siddaramaiah will complete his tenure as the Chief Minister.”
Madhusudhan was speaking at a press meet on Saturday on the sidelines of thanks-giving function ahead of his tenure as MLC coming to an end on July 4.
Speaking on the developmental works taken up during his tenure as MLC, Madhusudhan said, “I utilised the funds in a useful manner for the benefit of the people of all sections of the society. I am fully satisfied with my work.”
