Bengaluru: BJP national vice president and former state chief minister B S Yeddyurappa declared here on Wednesday that his sole aim was to bring back the BJP to power in the state.
Speaking to mediapersons at his Dollars Colony residence here, he said that it was immaterial who the next state party president or who the next CM candidate would be. Those matters would be taken care of by the party higher-ups, he added.
He criticized the chief minister for disregarding the drought conditions prevailing in the state and having concentrated only on capturing power at the BBMP.
He pointed out that the ministers from the drought-affected areas had not visited their respective places and urged him to immediately depute them to make a survey.
He also demanded of the CM to explain to the people to exact amounts spent on drought-related areas, instead of passing the buck on the Union government.
He demanded the state government first submit a report on drought situation in the state to the Union government and then only speak. He told mediapersons that during the recent Raita Chaitanya Yatra, the BJP leaders had fully come to know what kind of anger the people had towards the present government.
He said that there was a general feeling that he (Yeddyurappa) had kept up all his promises. That was why the Yatra could evoke a spirited response from the people.
