TUMKUR: Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa here on Sunday said he would break his silence at the right time as per the advice of BJP national leaders and Siddaganga mutt seer Sri Shivakumara Swami.
“The raw deal that I received would not have happened to any leader even in a country like Pakistan,” he remarked. Speaking to reporters after calling on the seer on his 105th birthday at the mutt, Yeddyurappa compared himself to a beautiful tree which was being deliberately targeted and chopped by the miscreants.
“With the blessings of the seer, I have got mammoth strength (‘ane bala’), and he has advised me to wait for the right time to break my silence,” he said. He wished that former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and his family should live long to see him deliver better work in the future.
He also said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would be invited for the seer’s exclusive birthday bash which would be conducted in Bangalore in the last week of April.
“We will organise about 10 lakh people to participate in the mega event,” he said. He also added that he would tour the state to assess the drought situation. “I want the drought situation to come to an end with the grace of God,” he said.
