No change of guard in Karnataka: Gadkari

J. Balaji

NEW DELHI: As Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa is once again being trapped in the controversies relating to donations received by the trust managed by his son B.Y. Raghavendra, MP, Bharatiya Janata Party national president Nitin Gadkari has reiterated that there is no question of change of leadership.

According to the former Union Minister and Karnataka Special Representative here, V. Dhananjay Kumar, who met Mr. Gadkari with a delegation of senior State BJP leaders, the latter told them that the party had no intention to change Mr. Yeddyurappa.

Mr. Yeddyurappa met Mr. Gadkari at the airport here after winding up his three-day visit on Tuesday evening whereas Mr. Gadkari was returning to the capital from Mumbai.

Mr. Dhananjay Kumar also refuted reports that some of the BJP MPs had raised a banner of revolt against the Chief Minister in view of the education trust controversy and boycotted the meeting convened by him. “There was no such scheduled meeting of MPs. Whoever landed in Delhi on Tuesday for attending the Parliament session made a courtesy call on Mr. Yeddyurappa,” he said.

Besides Mr. Kumar, Karnataka Ministers V.S. Acharya and Basavaraj Bommai and senior BJP leaders Chandre Gowda and Sivarama Gowda were also in the delegation.
