BJP workers upset with Bache Gowda

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: Labour Minister B.N. Bache Gowda is in for trouble as a group of prominent and senior workers from the Bharatiya Janata Party city unit have decided to lodge a formal complaint against him with party State president K.S. Eshwarappa and the RSS top brass for abusing party volunteers on Thursday night before the commencement of legislature party meeting.

Mr. Gowda created a scene on Thursday night by using unparliamentary language against party volunteers when they prevented his personal assistant and gunman from entering the lobby of the venue of the meeting.

The Minister, who was not convinced with the party volunteers' explanation that none of the Ministers was allowed to take their personal staff to the meeting zone, fumed at them and hurled abuses. “We felt humiliated as it happened in public and that too in full media glare,” a senior party worker who is associated with the party for more than two decades told The Hindu.

“We are waiting for the return of Mr. Eshwarappa, who has gone to Guwahati to attend the national executive. We will take a delegation of some senior party workers to him to complain against the behaviour of Mr. Gowda,” he said.

“Soon after the incident, we were thinking of staging a protest near the venue of the legislature party meeting itself. But some leaders prevented us from doing so as that would have affected the image of the party organisation. About 15 of us left the venue as a mark of silent protest. But we are determined to give it back to the Minister through the party organisation and take the issue to its logical end,” he said.
