BJP lost May 12 Assembly election due to confusion in the Party: Yeddyurappa

Leader of the Opposition in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly and BJP State President B S Yeddyurappa On Sunday admitted that his party lost May 12 Assembly election due to some internal confusion.

He called upon the party workers not to be disheartened and work hard for ensuring victory of the party in the Lok Sabha election due next year.

Addressing the City BJP Executive Committee Meeting here he said that the party has a set a target of winning over 20 Lok Sabha seats from the State.

Underlining the role of workers in organizing the party from the grass roots level, he said that he would tour 15 districts starting from August 9 and campaign for the party in the local body polls scheduled for August 29.

Lashing out at the JDS–Congress coalition government in the State, he said that it was a travesty of justice that a party which secured 38 seats came to power while the BJP which won 104 seats had to sit in the opposition.

Accusing the state government of non performance, he alleged that the farm loan waiver announced has remained only on paper, while in reality the government had not taken RBI approval which was mandatory for initiating the process.

Lashing out at the Opposition parties for moving non confidence motion against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mr Yeddyurappa alleged that the opposition parties were worried over Modi’s popularity, as the entire world is looking at India for its unprecedented growth after Modi came to power. (UNI)
