Snubbing his own party,former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa today praised Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her party.
I have to praise Sonia. I noticed that Congress party and its people are united and supportive if any of their party members gets into trouble, said Yeddyurappa. In Congress,whenever a prominent leader faces allegations,the party rises to protect him… But in BJP,people will be waiting for a person to get into problems and to sideline him. In BJP,people try to pull the chair and grab someone elses position also, he said.
He also called Sadananda Gowda a betrayer for not vacating the chief ministers post. His outburst came a day after nine ministers submitted their resignations to him. Asked if he would resign from the party,Yeddyurappa said: I will take a decision after consulting my ministers,leaders.
