Bengaluru, Jan 14: Frustrated over dissidence in the Karnataka BJP after cabinet expansion, chief minister B S Yediyurappa today asked the disgruntled legislators to complain to party high command instead of blaming his government. 

"If any of the MLAs have reservations (about Cabinet expansion), let them go to Delhi and complain about it to the BJP national leadership," he told reporters on Thursday.

The legislators should not damage the image of BJP in the state by making remarks against the government, Yediyurappa said. 

The chief minister is again battling disgruntlement from various MLAs of the state BJP unit following the much delayed Cabinet expansion on Wednesday. 

While Vijayapura MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal and MLC A H Vishwanath alleged that Yediyurappa had succumbed to 'blackmail' and inducted ministers, others such as MLAs M Satish Reddy and Arvind Bellad lashed out for not accommodating young leaders of the party in the Cabinet.

"They can go to Delhi. Party leaders will decide what is right and what is wrong," he said.

On why R R Nagar MLA Muniratna was not inducted, Yediyurappa declined to comment. Muniratna was among the 17 MLAs of the Congress-JD(S) coalition to resign in 2019, and was assured a Cabinet berth before the BJP high command advised against it ahead of expansion.

MLC Vishwanath's disqualification continues till May 2021: Karnataka HC -  Oneindia News

Hubballi, Jan 15: Disgruntled BJP Legislator A H Vishwanath said he would soon release his book 'Bombay Days' a tell-all account of what transpired at Mumbai during 'Operation Kamala-2'.

Speaking to the media here on Friday, he said the book would detail the conversations between Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and the 17 rebel MLAs.

Stating that the incidents that took place over the past three days have hurt him, he said that the BJP government which came to power in the state based on the sacrifice made by the 17 rebel MLAs has not kept up its word."

The book will spill the beans on all the issues that led to the 17 MLAs rebelling against their parties and what we were assured by the BJP leaders then, he added.

"Court might have barred me from holding a ministerial post, but why wasn't Munirathna made a Minister as promised? What are the credentials of C P Yogeshwar and Arvind Limbavli to become Ministers" he questioned.

Without naming Yogeshwar, he said it is the prerogative of the Chief Minister to include MLCs against whom there are hundreds of cases and stands every chance to go to jail if the court vacates the stay order.

Going soft on Yediyurappa, Vishwanath said the Chief Minister is like a Kamadhenu. However, he doesn't know what is happening around him as his life is in others' hands.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fighting a war against dynasty politics, in Karnataka, the exact opposite is taking place. While one son of Yediyurappa is an MP, another son is super CM and his son-in-laws and close relatives are wielding power.

Vishwanath said he has sought an appointment with Union Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss the leadership issue and political scenario in Karnataka, during Shah's visit to the state. Hope we will get to meet him.

Mangaluru, Jan 19: Democratic Youth Federation of India’s Karnataka state president Muneer Katipalla and Dakshina Kannada District Youth Congress President Mithun Rai have flayed the decision to shift RAF battalion base camp from Mangaluru to Bhadravathi in Shivamogga district.

The Union government had sanctioned RAF camp to Jaipur (Rajasthan), Mangaluru (Karnataka), Hajipur (Bihar), and Nuh (Haryana) and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. 

“The sudden shifting of the base camp is an injustice to Dakshina Kannada district," Rai told media persons and sought to know why MLAs and MP from Dakshina Kannada have not protested against the move. "Is Shivamogga MP more influential than Dakshina Kannada MP?" he asked.

He said the RAF Inspector General, along with other officials, had inspected the land in Badaga Ekkar and had held meetings with district administration in 2016. The RAF is required for a communally sensitive district like Dakshina Kannada, which has best transportation facility and connectivity to all neighbouring states, he added.

DYFI State President Muneer Katipalla said the MP should apologise to the people of the district owning moral responsibility and give an explanation for the shifting of the campus. "If the battalion is set up here, it would have helped in checking violence," he felt.

Katipalla said the government had earmarked land for RAF battalion base camp at Badaga Ekkaru in the past and measures were initiated to identify additional land for the campus. "All of a sudden, without any discussion, the batallion campus was shifted to Bhadravathi," he fumed.
