“Majority of the programmes implemented during my tenure have not reached people due to lack of information and publicity. I will create public awareness on all such schemes through the rath yatra," said Yeddyurappa.
Yeddyurappa declared his intentions after he inaugurated the Hanagal Kumareshwara dining hall. He further added that the stance would also aim to strengthen the BJP so that they win majorities in the 2012 Assembly elections and the yatra would tour Karnataka for a period of three months. A final decision on the yatra would be taken in the meeting of legislators on Oct 10.
Calling the Lokayukta report on illegal mining 'discriminatory', BSY said that his name was replaced with former chief minister, N Dharam Singh.
Yeddyurappa also said that he wrote a book to bring out the truth on the Lokayukta report and the book would be out in few days.
On his bail plea, Yeddyurappa said that “God only knows whether my bail plea will be considered or not".
