Zameer says he will tonsure his head if BJP wins more than 60 p.c. seats
‘Have advised Yeddyurappa to take lessons from Kumaraswamy'
LESSONS IN GOVERNANCE:Janata Dal (Secular) leader Zameer Ahmed Khan addressing an election meeting at Hejmady in Udupi district on Sunday.
Hejmady (Udupi District): Janata Dal (Secular) leader and former Minister Zameer Ahmed Khan said on Sunday that the days of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government in the State were numbered.
Mr. Khan was speaking at the party's public meeting here.
Mr. Khan said that B.S. Yeddyurappa was a “temporary Chief Minister”. He had cajoled the BJP high command to let him continue as Chief Minister and he would see to it that the party won at least 60 per cent of the seats in the zilla and taluk panchayat polls. “But that will not happen. If that happens I will shave my head and moustache and work as a watchman for a week,” he said.
He said if the BJP high command decided to remove Mr. Yeddyurappa after the zilla panchayat polls, Mr. Yeddyurappa would not bow out quietly. “Mr. Yeddyurappa will bring down the entire BJP Government with him”, Mr. Ahmed said.
He said that Mr. Yeddyurappa spoke about development of the State. But the last two-and-a-half years had shown that only his family had developed financially. Corruption was the only achievement of Mr. Yeddyurappa's Government.
Scams were being unearthed every day. But the BJP Government had turned a blind eye to it. “The BJP will not get more than 40 per cent of seats in the zilla and taluk panchayat elections,” he said.
Governance had taken a beating in the State. Mr. Yeddyurappa did not know how to govern. “I had advised Mr. Yeddyurappa to take an hour's tuition daily from the former Chief Minister and JD (S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy. But Mr. Yeddyurappa has not taken it up,” he said.
The former Minister Amarnath Shetty said the zilla and taluk panchayat elections were more prestigious for the BJP. “The people should support the JD(S) for its resolute stand against corruption,” he said.
Shakeel Nawaz, head of the Minorities Cell of the JD(S) State unit, party leaders Deviprasad Shetty, Vasudeva Rao, Y. Gangadhar Suvarna, Khairunissa, Sudhakar Shetty, Chandrashekhar Suvarna, Lalita K., A.K. Sulaiman, Ranjan Shetty, and Abbas Haji were present.
