GADAG: Close on the heels of former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa launching a blistering attack on state BJP President K S Eswarappa, former minister B Sreeramulu charged him with being responsible for internal fissures in the saffron party and termed him as a "quarrelsome person".

"Eshwarappa is quarrelsome and is responsible for internal bickerings in state BJP unit," he told reporters here.

Eshwraappa did not spare Yeddyurappa even when he was chief minister. "He (Eshwarappa) also gave me trouble in many ways," he alleged.

Development in the state has come to a standstill due to infighting and the opposition also failed to take issues to its logical conclusions, he said, adding people would give the opposition parties a fitting reply future elections.

Sreeramulu also said he quit after BJP sidelined him, forcing him to seek re-election as an independent from Bellary assembly constituency.

He blamed Congress and its allies, besides main opposition BJP for failing to pass Lokpal Bill in Rajya Sabha. "I always supported Anna Hazare on Lokpal Bill and will extend cooperation in his fight against corruption," he said, adding he would soon meet the social activist.

He also came down on both the central and state governments for 'failing' to handle the severe drought in North Karnataka.
