He also said that there is confusion in the Congress party regarding the selection of candidates for the MLC election. “Four aspirants are fighting for one seat while the BJP has already announced candidates for 12 seats across the state,” he added.

He further said that the BJP will oppose the Yettinahole project. “On December 4, CM Siddaramaiah has called for a meeting but we are not aware of it. Siddaramaiah has showed special interest in continuing the project. We will continue to protest against the project. We are not against the government for providing water to Kolar; our concern is that the government should find a permanent solution in this regard.”

When asked about Eshwarappa supporting Congress to continue the project, Kateel replied that Eshwarappa did not support the continuation of the project. “Instead Eshwarappa has advised to find a permanent solution to provide water. We will raise Yettinahole river diversion project issue in the Lok Sabha. We have already sent a memorandum to the environment Minister Prakash Javdekar and Water Resource Minister Uma Bharati, not to sanction any funds for the project.  Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has heard the voice of the people of DK and he is afraid of them. He is in a hurry to continue the project but we will not allow it.”

State BJP General Secretary Nirmal Kumar Surana, Kota Srinivas Poojary, MP ShobhaKarandlaje, Monappa Bhandary, Pratap Simha Nayak and others were also present.
