Dharmendra Pradhan is arriving in Bangalore today on a trouble-shooting mission
Earlier, the rebels wanted to send a delegation to the party high command in Delhi
BANGALORE: The rebels' camp in the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is reportedly planning to submit documents related to some of the scams allegedly involving Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa to party national general secretary Dharmendra Pradhan who is arriving in Bangalore on Wednesday morning on a trouble-shooting exercise.
Mr. Pradhan, who is in-charge of the party's Karnataka affairs, is on a two-day visit to the State. He is expected to hold consultations with prominent leaders from the camps of the rebels as well as the Chief Minister.
Before the confirmation of Mr. Pradhan's visit, the rebels' camp had decided to send a delegation of its prominent leaders comprising K.S. Eshwarappa, Ananth Kumar, Jagadish Shettar and G. Janardhan Reddy to Delhi on March 25 to meet the party high command and to furnish the documents related to the alleged scams to them.
However, now they are likely to take a final decision depending upon the response from Mr. Pradhan to their complaints. But a large number of members from the rebels' camp are said to be keen that their leaders should meet party president Nitin Gadkari, national general secretary Arun Jaitley and former national president M. Venkaiah Naidu to clarify their position to them.
The party high command is said to be concerned about the timing of the ongoing rebellion as it fears that it may affect the by-polls to three Assembly constituencies scheduled to be held on April 9.
There is a feeling among rebels that the high command may look into their demands after the by-polls.
In this background, the rebels' group is learnt to have decided to maintain the tempo till April 9 by continuing to hold their secret meetings on a regular basis to send a message to the high command that they are firm on their demand for a leadership change.
Meanwhile, party joint organising general secretary V. Satish is learnt to have held consultations with some members from the rebels' group and tried to ask them to drop their dissident activities. But this met with a lukewarm response from the rebels as they defended their action, sources said.
