Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's son and MP B Y Raghavendra today described the resolution of the fortnight-long state BJP crisis as a "gift" by the Central Leadership to the state.
"I am really very happy that the crisis has been resolved. It is the leader of the Opposition in Parliament L K Advani's birthday today. It is the Central Leaderships' gift to the state," a much-relieved Raghavendra told reporters here today.
Describing the solution as a long-term one, he said all of them would work together in future in the interest of the party and the state.
He denied the allegation by the Reddy brothers, tourism minister S Janardhana Reddy and his brother and revenue minister G Karunakara Reddy, that the Yeddyurappa family were interfering in the administration and also other ministries.
Raghavendra said he was very busy with work in his own constituency and had no time for political interference in other departments.
To a query, whether this was one of the worst political crisis Yeddyurappa had faced, given the fact that he had also broken down on TV during an interview, he said his father was capable of facing still bigger challenges in future.
