BJP yet to accept Shetty's resignation

Special Correspondent

Family reasons cited for his decision

MANGALORE: President of Dakshina Kannada unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party K. Padmanabha Kottari said on Wednesday that the party had not accepted the resignation of the former minister B. Nagaraja Shetty to the primary membership of the party.

He told The Hindu that Mr. Shetty had submitted the resignation letter to him five days ago.

He had quit as chairman of Karnataka Coastal Development Authority.

He had cited family reasons for quitting the party and the authority.

Mr. Kottari said that he had brought this to the notice of the party leaders in the State unit which was yet to take a decision. However, there is speculation in party circles that Mr. Shetty had quit because of differences with Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa.

The differences were relating to recent queries from Mr. Yeddyurappa to Mr. Shetty over transportation of iron ore through New Mangalore Port when H.D. Kumaraswamy was the Chief Minister. Mr. Shetty was the Minister for Fisheries and Muzarai in the Janata Dal (S)-BJP coalition government and Mr. Yeddyurappa was the Deputy Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister called on Mr. Shetty at his residence here on Monday and has invited him to Bangalore to discuss the issue, the sources said.
