BJP not so desperate to form government in Karnataka: BS Yeddyurappa

Bengaluru: Sending out confusing signals,  state BJP  president B.S. Yeddyurappa on Sunday asserted that his party was not trying to topple the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition government in the state but in the same breath maintained that many Congress leaders were in touch with him.

Speaking to reporters at his residence in Dollars Colony here, Mr Yeddyurappa said, “I do not know why both Janata Dal (Secular) and Congress leaders are so worried? The Bharatiya Janata Party is not desperate to form a government here. Let them(coalition) focus on people’s welfare instead of making false accusations against us.”

He added that though many Congress leaders were in touch with him after the Belagavi PLD Bank fiasco, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s main agenda is to win more seats in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. 

“We are in the process of strengthening our units at various levels.  Many Congress leaders are in touch with me. Especially after the Belagavi fiasco, the number of leaders approaching me has gone up. I think they (coalition) are scared of something unusual happening after the recent Belagavi episode,” he said but refused to divulge details.

The veteran leader disclosed that he will soon start his state-wide yatra to organise the party from the grassroot level.

 “Already some of our leaders have started touring their respective regions, where they wield considerable influence, I will start my yatra soon,” Mr Yeddyurappa said.
