TUMKUR: Two days after he was reportedly summoned by the chief minister for disciplinary action, Tumkur Rural MLA B Suresh Gowda stuck to his stand on Friday and did not hesitate to make public his allegiance to former CM B S Yeddyurappa.
He also chose to attack CM D V Sadananda Gowda.
Suresh Gowda recently proclaimed that Yeddyurappa’s fate could not be decided by the leaders sitting in New Delhi. The CM had reportedly told him not to go against the diktats of the party high command.
Suresh Gowda fired another missive by asking the CM to ponder over who was responsible for him to get to the top post.
“It was Yeddyurappa and not the party high command which made him the CM. Instead of enlightening me, Gowda should first enlighten the law minister who cast his vote in favour of Jagadish Shettar,” he added.
