Yeddyurappa says Eshwarappa not responsible for his imprisonment
Ever since he left BJP, Yeddyurappa never missed an opportunity to blame Eshwarappa for every single misfortune. He had publicly blamed Eshwarppa several times for all his misfortunes and whatever went wrong with him.
But now, tables seem to be turning.
"Concentrating on strengthening the party"
Sources close to Yeddyurappa said these two leaders held back-to-back meetings with the former chief minister in Bengaluru and Shimoga on Saturday and Sunday to iron out differences.
The sources said the trio first met in Yeddyurappa's residence in Bengaluru on Saturday followed by another in Shankaramurthy's place in Shimoga on Sunday. They not only discussed the current political situation but also the urgent need for Modi's leadership in elections to Lok Sabha next year. They recalled their struggle in strengthening the BJP in Karnataka and also discussed the present status of the party.
He also said, meeting Eshwarappa in Shimoga is not an indication of his return to BJP. "I will never do that. Instead, I shall concentrate on strengthening the party for the forthcoming Lok Sabha election," he said.
