BENGALURU: Leader of the opposition in Legislative Council K S Eshwarappa’s moves to organise HINDA (Kannada acronym for backward classes and dalits) rallies under the banner of Sangolli Rayanna Brigade has met with resistance within BJP.
BJP state vice-president B Sriramulu has said that the party’s national leadership will be requested to restrain Eshwarappa from going ahead with his proposed rallies of backward communities and dalits.
“BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa is our leader and we all should work under his guidance to bring BJP back to power in the state,” Sriramulu said.
Meanwhile, the issue is set to come up for discussion at the BJP state core committee meeting scheduled to be held on August 16.
Eshwarappa, who is miffed with the alleged autocratic style of functioning of Yeddyurappa in appointing district office-bearers of the party, is determined to air his differences and demand remedial action.
