Bangarappa will be relegated to third position, says Yediyurappa

Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE: The former Chief Minister S. Bangarappa resigned from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) although the party regarded him among its top leaders and respected him, B.S. Yediyurappa, BJP leader, has said.

Mr. Yediyurappa told presspersons here on Wednesday that in the coming byelection for the Shimoga Lok Sabha seat, Mr. Bangarappa would be relegated to the third position. The BJP will ensure his defeat, he said. He said Mr. Bangarappa has become synonymous with defection in Indian politics. With the exit of Mr. Bangarappa, the BJP has set its goal to cultivate its own leaders in the State, he added. Asked if his party was doing well, Mr. Yediyurappa said "internal adjustments" have been made by the party command, and the State unit is functioning well. In the byelections to Shimoga and Chamarajpet and the elections to zilla and taluk panchayats, the BJP's "real strength" will be established by a resounding victory, he added.
