Bengaluru, Jan 26: Taking serious note of the mud-slinging game going on between a few legislators of his party on the issue of the rejig of the state ministry, state BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel, has instructed his party legislators against openly speaking or discussing about the proposed exercise.
Speaking to the media on the issue, Nalin said that the BJP is a disciplined party where everyone is expected to be disciplined. "If the leaders violate repeated warnings, such indiscipline will not be tolerated. They have to raise whatever issues they have in the party forums without speaking in the public. I will summon some legislators who are in the habit of talking through the media. In case of people who repeatedly broke discipline, a report was obtained from the state disciplinary committee and sent to the centre. The centre will study the report and take action. Those who were served with the notices so far have given clarifications, and henceforth too, if anyone violates discipline, the committee will issue notices and party leaders will decide what has to be done," he explained.
He said that meetings and consultations were held on the issue of appointments to corporations and boards and that a report will be provided to the chief minister in a week, after which these appointments will be made. He also clarified that ministers were made in-charge of districts as per the instructions of the national leaders. He also stated that ministers R Ashok and J C Madhuswamy will be shouldering bigger responsibilities and therefore districts were not allotted to them.
He accused the Congress party of having relationship with an enemy nation, which is proved by the fact that the Prime Minister of Pakistan had called the chief minister of a state asking to give chief ministership of the state to a particular candidate. He predicted victory for the BJP in all the five states and that the Congress will be decimated.
