Vijayapura: Former minister Basangouda Patil Yatnal, who has been vocal in his criticism against former Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has claimed that Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai visited JD (S) supremo HD Devegowda on the advice of the BJP’s high command.
The meeting was a strategy discussion. He claims that if Bommai stops listening to Yediyurappa and begins executing his own ideas, Yediyurappa may attempt to destabilise the government. If 10 to 20 MLAs back Yediyurappa, the JD (S) is likely to support the government unconditionally to save the government. As a result, he added, HDD’s declaration that they are ready to support the government has gained significance.
