Bengaluru: Making clear his intention of his rigorous exercise that began in Karnataka today, Bharatiaya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah today exhorted party men to stand united and recapture power in the State.
Addressing the party workers at Jaganath Bhavan–the party State headquarters here, after a tumultuous reception on arrival, he said that everyone should work united under the leadership of B.S. Yeddyurappa, who was declared as Chief Ministerial candidate.
He declared thereby that the party would not allow a second power centre to evolve in the State by stating that the party would not hesitate to initiate stringent action against those who give room for rebel activities.
Shah said that the unity in the party is utmost important as the time has come to make the State ‘Congress Mukth Karnataka’.
Congress has no right to retain power as corruption has become rampant in the State during its rule.
He said there is urgent need for strengthening the organisation right from the grassroot-level and for this, “unity is the only principle, which should be followed by each and everyone whether a worker or a leader.”
Later, Shah presided over BJP State Core Committee meeting in which among other things the alleged difference of opinion among the senior State leaders against B.S. Yeddyurappa for his dictatorship attitude and taking important decisions without consulting others have come up.
