‘Yeddyurappa failed to keep his word'


He has backed out of ‘truth test' under the pretext of party president's advice: Congress


DAVANGERE: The District Congress Committee on Monday said that the people had realised the true colours of Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa after he abstained from the ‘truth test' before Lord Manjunatha at Dharamsthala, contrary to his challenge to State president of the Janata Dal (S) H.D. Kumaraswamy.

Mr. Yeddyurappa had developed cold feet and backed out under the pretext that he had been advised against taking part in the “truth test” by his party president and the heads of various maths.

D. Basavaraj, general secretary of the District Congress Committee, in a statement on Monday, said that the sanctity of Dharmasthala, a popular pilgrimage centre, was saved by the Chief Minister not taking a false oath there.

Allegation

Accusing Mr. Yeddyurappa of having spent all his days settling scores with Opposition leaders, Mr. Basavaraj urged the former to focus on development at least from now on.
