As the BJP continued to crack down on his supporters in the ruling dispensation, Karnataka Janata Paksha president B S Yeddyurappa on Tuesday threatened retaliation, hinting that he is no longer keen on survival of the Jagadish Shettar government in the state.
The BJP government, late on Monday evening, removed two Yeddyurappa loyalists from their posts in state-run bodies. Captain Ganesh Karnik was stripped off the post of vice-chairman of Non-Resident Indian Committee and M Rudresh of chairmanship of the Kanteerava Studios Limited.
Party sources on Tuesday said that more Yeddyurappa loyalists would be removed from key positions in state-run boards and corporations, which are held by political appointees. They said 16 BJP MLAs and MLCs would replace them.
Speaking to reporters in Mysore, Yeddyurappa noted that most of his supporters have been dropped from boards and corporations and also recalled that his loyalist B J Puttaswamy had been sacked from the ministry and Tumkur Lok Sabha MP G S Basavaraj suspended from the party earlier.
