Bengaluru: Attacking the state BJP for the failure in the Panchayat polls, BJP National President Amit Shah has reportedly told the state BJP that it failed to perform as an aggressive opposition and advised to expose the ‘misdeeds’ of the Siddaramaiah government in future.

“If the opposition had tackled the government more aggressively, we could have bagged more seats. With the local bodies’ poll results indicating an anti-incumbency wave against the Siddaramaiah-led government, the leaders must exploit the situation by organising a public movement across the State,” Shah had reportedly said.
BJP national president Amit Shah, who chaired a meeting of senior leaders of the party from Karnataka here late on Tuesday night, also expressed his unhappiness over the State leaders not taking up some of the major issues like the sting operation against Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya and the chief minister’s costly watch row to their logical end, reported Deccan Herald.

It is said that Shah pulled up the state leaders for remaining passive over major issues like transfer of DySP Anupama Shenoy, the lottery scam, encroachments of government land by the ruling party leaders and corruption in the Lokayukta office.

Senior leaders of the party, including State unit chief Pralhad Joshi, Union Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, Union Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar, former chief minster B S Yeddyurappa and K S Eshwarappa were present at the meeting.
