Berth pangs push...

BANGALORE: The simmering dissidence by a section of MLAs in the ruling-BJP who missed out cabinet berths in the new government appears to have divided former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa's camp. Belur Gopalakrishna, B Suresh Gowda and B P Harish are said to told Yeddyurappa that would not step into his house in future as he did not fight their case for cabinet induction. Hoping they would be part of the cabinet, these MLAs were most vocal and acted like Yeddyurappa's spokespersons in the Oust Sadananda Gowda Campaign. Others MLAs in the Yeddyurappa camp upset with Yeddyurappa include K Shivannagouda Naik, M P Kumaraswamy, M Chandrappa, C C Patil, Prathapgouda Patil and G Karunakara Reddy. They constituted the core group and Yeddyurappa drew strength from them for dissidence. With none of them getting a berth, the group is on the verge of a split. Yeddyurappa's demand to the BJP high command to include MLC BJ Puttaswamy in the government has further angered these disgruntled MLAs. Sources said Yeddyurappa told state and central BJP leaders that Puttaswamy's inclusion in the cabinet is equivalent to three or four ministers. At a time when (JDS) leaders HD Deve Gowda, HD Kumaraswamy and HD Revanna were going public about Yeddyurappa's corrupt practices by releasing documents pertaining to kickbacks he allegedly received for various projects and land denotification, it was Puttaswamy who came to the rescue of Yeddyurappa by countering it by releasing documents of alleged corrupt practices of JD(S) leaders. The disgruntled MLAs met at former minister Karunakara Reddy's residence on Friday. Around 5-6 MLAs, mostly from Bellary, attended the meet. These MLAs plan to meet on Monday and leave to New Delhi later to give a memorandum to BJP bosses to set right things in the state. Meanwhile, Haladi Srinivas Shetty, who said he didn't get a ministerial berth despite assurance by all top leaders, wanted to resign, but Speaker KG Bopaiah was not present. Two senior leaders maintained that Shetty's name was never in the probables list. "He is a good leader and an asset to the party, we'll pacify him," a senior minister told TOI.
