Change of leadership in state will happen soon- Yatnal

Bengaluru: BJP rebel MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal once again hits out at the Chief Minister B.S.Yediyurappa and his family members, stating that the change of leadership will happen in the state soon.

Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Mr. Yatnal said that "evil spirit will destroy, but we have to wait for an appropriate time," he said. 

Replying to a question on B.Y. Vijayendra's statement about BSY completing two years tenure, Mr. Yatnal said that I could have told the same to media, if I am the Chief Minister's son. Nothing new in his statement. But we will not tolerate corruption in the administration, and it will harm our party, he added.

"The incumbent Chief Minister has gone to jail for corruption charges. Don't call Mr. Yediyurappa as Rajahuli. We will wait for an appropriate time to destroy the evil spirit in the party", he remarked. 

Mr. Yatnal clarified that ongoing agitation for demanding 2A status to Panchamasali lingayat would not be stopped, though few politicians had tried to derail the agitation, he said.
