BANGALORE: “I know former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa for the last 30 years. I do not think he will take any action that will tarnish the party image. I respect him and request him not to do so,” said Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister S Suresh Kumar.
On Tumkur MLA Suresh Gowda reportedly making statements in support of Yeddyurappa, he said, “He is an important member of our party and an administrator; I am sure he has thought reflected on what he spoke.”
He parried questions on Cabinet expansion, stating that such decisions were the chief minister’s prerogative. He stated that all decisions would be taken in an unified manner keeping the interests of all parties in mind.
