Yeddy says BJP, JDS may have understanding to form alliance

Bangalore: Karnataka Janata party leader BS Yeddyurappa today charged the ruling BJP and opposition JDS with having an 'overt understanding' between them for forging an alliance for the coming Assembly elections.

"Both BJP and JDS have an overt understanding between them and will forge alliance in coming election," he told reporters at the formal launch of the party's youth wing here.

Lambasting former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda on the Cauvery issue, Yeddyurappa said the JDS supremo was "fooling" people with his dual stance on it.

"On the one hand Gowda advises Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu and on the other, launches a padayatra against release of water. He is fooling people," he said.

Yeddyurappa termed the state budget presented by Shettar as nothing but an 'election manifesto' of the BJP.

"Budget presentation was an useless exercise as it cannot be implemented following the model code of conduct for urban local bodies poll. Soon after this, assembly elections will be held. Therefore, the budget presentation was a futile exercise," he said.
