Former chief minister and KJP chief B S Yeddyurappa on Thursday inducted seven former BJP MLAs who had resigned on Tuesday into the KJP.

The seven former MLAs inducted are — Shobha Karandlaje, C M Udasi, H Halappa, B P Harish, Vittal Katakadhonda, G Shivanna and Nehru Olekar.

Addressing reporters, Yeddyurappa took serious exception to Speaker K G Bopaiah’s return to Madikeri. He demanded that he be present in the state capital as the budget session is round the corner.

“I think the BJP leaders must have advised him to go out of Bangalore fearing that more BJP MLAs will resign,” he said. He also questioned the Speaker’s conduct when 13 MLAs went to the office to resign on Tuesday.

“He took just three minutes to accept my resignation but took more than 10 hours to accept the resignations of 12 MLAs,” Yeddyurappa charged.
