Bangalore, May 21:Joining issue with senior party leader Rajnath Singh over his “no vacancy” comment, beleaguered BJP Karnataka strongman B S Yeddyurappa today said his comments were “unwarranted” and maintained that he had never clamoured for any party position.



“I have never clamoured for any party position or chief minister’s post.. the comments are unwarranted,” Yeddyurappa told reporters here.

The former Chief Minister, who recently pushed the party government in the state to a crisis threatening its survival, said he would soon write to Singh expressing his is pleasure over the remarks.

Hinting that there would be no change of leadership in BJP in Karnataka as was being demanded by supporters of Yeddyurappa, Singh had said there was ‘no vacancy’ there.


“Where is the vacancy? D V Sadananda Gowda is our chief minister in Karnataka,” Singh told reporters at Ranchi yesterday in response to a query whether there would be a leadership change in Karnataka.

On BJP state president K S Eshwarappa reportedly praising him for being unruffled amid a spate of corruption cases and a CBI probe, Yeddyurappa said he didn’t need any sympathy from anybody. “These are not the words of sympathy, but insult,” he said.

After triggering a crisis with nine ministers and several

MLA loyal to him submitting their resignations, Yeddyurappa


however, announced a few days ago that he had deferred his decision to quit the part  

Peeved over the party’s top brass sidelining him, Yeddyurappa had said he would not attend the BJP National Executive to be held in Mumbai from May 24, and launched a scathing attack on general secretary Anantkumar, alleging that he was misguiding the party.
