Yeddyurappa threatens shutdown during Rahul Gandhi's Karnataka visit

Lynette PayneJan 27, 2018

"When BJP government is formed wherever their killers are hiding we will find them and put them in jail", Shah said.

"In Karnataka, Siddaramaiah means corruption and corruption means Siddaramaiah", Shah said.

Karnataka is bracing for a shutdown today with farmers and some pro-Kannada groups sticking to their bandh call from 6 am to 6 pm over the Mahadayi river water sharing dispute. Shah said, "Congress has not forgotten its Emergency culture".

A Bengaluru bandh has been called on February 4 also, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting the poll-bound state to take part in "Nav Karnataka Parivartan Yatra" of the state unit in the city. "Yeddyurappa" class="local_link" >BS Yeddyurappa has said that his party would enforce complete bandh in district in which Congress president Rahul Gandhi will be visiting during his Karnataka tour.

The 84-year old veteran, who served as Prime Minister from June, 1996 to April, 1997, was at his critical best as he took on the Congress regime ahead of the Assembly polls in the State which are to be held soon. "The anti-incumbency factor will sink Mr. Siddaramaiah and the Congress", he said.

In the same vein, he attacked the Congress party for opposing the anti-triple talaq bill and termed it as Congress party's "minority appeasement strategy".

Recalling the transfer of Hassan Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri Dasari, Mr. Yeddyurappa lashed out at the Chief Minister and said his style of functioning was condemnable. Siddaramaiah has ensured that these programmes don't reach the people, fearing that Mr Modi will become popular. Give me the account.

In a surprise, BJP's chief ministerial probable BS Yeddyurappa stood third, with HD Kumaraswamy from the JD (S) coming second.

At the BJP's really, Shah told party workers, "Despite the desperate attempt by the Congress to prevent the holding of this rally, we have been able to hold it successfully".

He claimed that BJP will solve the Mahadayi issue after the BJP comes to power in the State.
