Raichur, Jan 13: Opposition leader Siddaramaiah, also a Kuruba community leader, on Tuesday said that he was not opposed the reservation for Kuruba community but opposed to this agitation because RSS was behind it.

Addressing press persons here in grand ' Halumath ' convention at Veragota in Devadurga taluk, Mr Siddaramaiah accused BJP of conspiring to divide the Kuruba community and aiming to isolate him. "RSS is behind this," he alleged.

Mr Siddaramaiah said that Congress party recommended for the inclusion of Bestha, Gangamathasta, Mogaveera caste into the Scheduled Tribe list. Now, there is a movement demanding that the Kurubas be included in the ST list. If all these communities are given the ST tag, the percentage of ST will increase to 20 percent from 3%, he said.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is leading the Union government and Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa is heading the state government. When BJP is in power at both state and Centre, what was the necessity of conventions and all for KS Eashwarappa?, he said.

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.
