KJP can take Karnataka on path of glory: Yeddyurappa
Former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today asserted that only a regional party could restore the past glory of Karnataka as he formally dissociated with the Bharatiya Janata Party severing four-decades of his relationship with it.
Instrumental in BJP capturing power for the first time in South in Karantaka, Mr Yeddyurappa quoted the examples of West Bengal, Orissa, Bihar and Tamil Nadu and said that only a regional party with adequate muscle power could ensure justice to the state which was rich in resources but lacked sincere political leaders.
Addressing a public rally before marching to the Vidhana Soudha to tender his resignation letter to Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah Mr Yeddyurappa said he was full of tears when he announced to the media this morning about his parting ways with the BJP.
He appealed to his supporters to ensure that the rally convened at Haveri on December 9 to formalise his association with the regional outfit. Karnataka Janatha Party (KJP) was a 'historic successs' Continuing his diatribe against BJP leaders, he said he was forced out of the party by some leaders who wanted to install another man as the Chief Minister and gave him all sorts of trouble to ease him out of the party.
