Mysuru: State BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel on Thursday dismissed former CM Siddaramaiah's remark that Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa was being treated like an unwanted child by his party.
Mr Kateel, who was speaking to the media in Kollegal, said when Mr Siddaramaiah himself was being neglected by the Congress, it was not necessary to give importance to his statements.
“People are happy with the administration of the BJP government led by Mr Narendra Modi at the Centre and the party has won a good number of seats in Maharashtra and Haryana due to the good programmes of Devendra Fadnavis and Khattar. It will win all 15 constituencies in byelections in the state and Mr Yediyurappa will not only complete his term, but the BJP will come back to power for another term,” he asserted.
Mr Siddaramaiah had recently commented that Mr Yediyurappa's wings had been clipped by the national leadership of the BJP and said that he was given full freedom to function when he was Chief Minister by the Congress high command.
Meanwhile, Mysuru district-incharge minister V. Somanna, who held a meeting with officials on flood relief works here Thursday, said that in future houses would not be built in flood-prone areas....
