Eshwarappa Asks Why No Action Against Somashekhar and Hebbar So Far

Ks Eshwarappa

Mangaluru: KS Eshwarappa, the expelled BJP leader, has questioned the State BJP unit’s failure to take action against MLAs ST Somashekhar and Shivaram Hebbar. 


Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Eshwarappa questioned the party’s inconsistent approach to expelling leaders for anti-party activities. He pointed out that both Somashekhar and Hebbar campaigned against the BJP and openly criticized the party leadership, yet no disciplinary action has been initiated against them.

Eshwarappa further criticized the lack of action, and blamed its state unit president BY Vijayendra for not initiating action against them and he even termed him ‘Baccha’ (kid).

Regarding the alleged suicide of a tribal welfare officer in Shivamogga, Eshwarappa refrained from commenting on the actions of BJP leaders but criticized both the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister for their silence on the matter.

 Drawing a comparison to his own response to allegations in the contractor Santosh Patil suicide case, Eshwarappa highlighted the importance of accountability. He called for the immediate resignation of Minister Nagendra, whose name has surfaced in connection with the case.

Additionally, Eshwarappa demanded that Prajwal Revanna’s case be handed over to the CBI, expressing doubts about the impartiality of the ongoing SIT investigation. He argued that an investigation by the SIT may be influenced by the directives of the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister, thus compromising its impartiality.
