KJP will get absolute majority in next poll: Yeddyurappa
Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) leader B S Yedyurappa today said his party will contest alone in all the 224 constituencies in the coming polls in the state and win absolute majority.
Talking to newspersons at Thaliparamaba Raja Rajeswara Temple premises, Mr Yedyurappa said KJP was a secular party and had the support of the people of Karnataka irrespective of caste and religion.
He asserted that it had not sought the support of any political party, including BJP or Congress.
He said the party would go to the people and seek their opinion before fielding candidates. When he was asked about the mining scandal, he said he was not afraid of any action, as he had always fought against the mining lobby and the central government was aware of this.
He also visited Agasthya Ashramam in Manal near Azhikode and Ganapathi mandapam in Puthiya Theruvu and Madayi Kavu.
He was accompanied by some of his party men.
