BJP leader Shanta Kumar urges action against Yeddyurappa


Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Shanta Kumar today demanded action against Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa in the light of his reported indictment by Lokayukta Justice N Santosh Hegde in his report on illegal mining of iron ore in the state.

In a letter to BJP Parliamentary Party Chairman L K Advani and BJP President Nitin Gadkari, Mr Shanta Kumar is understood to have demanded action against Mr Yeddyurappa to improve the image of the party, sources said.

The BJP's inability to act when the allegations were flying has adversely affected the party's image and it is high time that the party acted now, Mr Kumar wrote, the sources added.
