Mysuru: Following the interim order of the high court nixing his chances of becoming a minister, BJP MLC A H Vishwanath is thinking to file a review petition.
Speaking to media persons, Vishwanath who claimed the support of fellow MLAs who are known as ‘Bombay Team’, Vishwanath said “We have a common opinion of filing a a review petition. I am not alone in the Bombay Team. All the leaders of the party have assured their support”.
Saying that he is yet to receive the order copy of the high court, Vishwanath said “it has directed not to consider for Minister’s post. But I will be the MLC till 2027”, Vishwanath added.
Taking a dig at fellow MLC C P Yogeeshwara, Vishwanath who lost his cool, shot back at media. Who is Yogeeshwara? What is his role in forming BJP government? Has he resigned any MLA post or made any sacrifices for the party. What is the hurry in giving ministerial post to Yogeeshwara. He is roaming in Mumbai and Pune with suitcase, Vishwanath claimed.
Vishwanath directly blamed Chief Minister Yediyurappa and the party top brass for giving undue prominence to Yogeeshwara.
Yatnal and Umesh Katthi are in line to become ministers. Instead of them, why the name of Yogeeshwara has cropped up? Vishwanath questioned, expressing his anguish.
