Mangaluru, Apr 3: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President D K Shivakumar on Saturday urged Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to drop Minister of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj of Karnataka K S Eshwarappa from the cabinet for writing a letter to the Governor against his administration.

Speaking to newsmen at the airport here on Saturday, he said that "if Yediyurappa feels that there were no lapses in his administration then he should dismiss K S Eshwarappa immediately."

“A senior Minister of the cabinet rank has stated that he has no confidence in the Chief Minister and has written a letter to the Governor, who is the Constitutional head. The administrative mechanism has totally collapsed in the State. Officials are unable to discharge their duties effectively and were frequently transferred,” he added.

“In my political career, I have not seen any Minister questioning the Chief Minister and complaining to the Governor. Mr Eshwrappa has exposed lapses in the government. If Mr Yediyurappa feels that he has been giving clean administration, then he should either dismiss Eshwarappa or Eshwarappa should tender resignation," he added.
