Bangalore, Jan 29 : Padmanab Prasanna, the founder President of the Karnataka Janatha Paksha (KJP), was today stripped of the primary membership of the party by former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who now heads the party

Mr Prasanna, who has been made a Vice-President following the enmasse joining of the followers of Mr Yeddyurappa in the KJP, had written to the Election Commission, expressing his inability to continue in the party and hence he had been removed from all posts, including the primary membership of the party

Mr Prasanna, in a letter to the Election Commission, stated that Mr Yeddyurappa had been expelled from the party as he had been acting as a dictator and indulged in acts that were against the rules and regulations of the KJP. He said hence, he continued to be the President of the Party

This had sparked commotion in the KJP with members and Office Bearers protesting against his act that too when ruling BJP MLAs, loyal to Yeddyurappa, submitted their resignation to the Speaker and staging dharna in his Chamber for immediate acceptance
