Disgruntled BS Yeddyurappa praises Congress, bashes BJP

Bangalore, Sept 28: There seems to be no end to the ongoing feud between the top leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Former Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa.

In his latest attack against BJP, Yeddyurappa praised Congress and its functioning on Friday, Sept 28.

"At least the Congress does not let down its leaders," said the 69-year-old leader.

In Jul 2011, Yeddyurappa was forced by the BJP to resign from his post as Chief Minister of Karnataka after he was indicted in the Lokayukta report on illegal mining in the state. Since then, the senior BJP leader, on a regular basis, has been targeting his party.

Yeddyurappa is upset that BJP's high command at New Delhi is yet to appoint him as Karnataka Party President. Because of the delay in getting the coveted post, the former Chief Minister did not even attend the ongoing BJP conclave in picturesque Surajkund on the outskirts of Delhi.

"In the last 40 years, this is the first time that I did not attend the national executive meeting," he said.

"Gadkari had told me that he would appoint me as state Party President in 24 hours... at the time of the appointment of Sadananda Gowda as Chief Minister... but it did not happen."

Yeddyurappa added that he would soon write a letter to BJP party president Nitin Gadkari to explain his absence from the conclave.
