Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has alleged that Union Minister Prahlad Joshi was the reason for the arrest of Former CM B. S. Yediyurappa earlier and denying a ministerial post for his son B. Y. Vijayendra.
In a series of tweets, Siddaramaiah alleged that B. S. Yediyurappa worked very hard to organise the party across the State. “Who is behind his arrest and subsequently sidelining him in the party,” he questioned.
He also alleged that Joshi is behind BJP Lawmaker Basangouda Ramangouda Patil Yatnal’s outburst against BSY and his family members.
Siddaramaiah also alleged that Joshi is destroying the political future of Lingayat leaders for his selfish political gains.
