Bangalore: The BJP continues to face infighting after the expansion of the cabinet in Karnataka. Several MLAs have taken a rebellious stand against the expansion of the cabinet. For the first time, CM BS Yeddyurappa has broken the silence on the revolt of legislators. He says the MLAs who have complained raise the matter before the top leadership of the party.
On the allegation of making his closed ones as minister, CM Yeddyurappa said, "I urge all the MLAs who are making allegations, he should speak before the top leadership of the party, nobody is stopping them. It's not right to react here and there, it won't be good in the party forum, don't create any confusion." Yeddyurappa said that we have expanded the cabinet. According to the directions of our party high command, we have kept a post vacant. I have seen some MLAs alleging that they did not get a ministerial post. I've done my best even after the boundaries. Some people have made baseless allegations.
Yeddyurappa further said that 10-12 MLAs have expressed their displeasure over the cabinet expansion. If they are really disappointed, they should keep their point before the party high command. It would not be appropriate for them to make these statements in the media and create confusion and show dissatisfaction. These statements are against the ideologies of the party.
