Cong-JDS combine cannot destablise my Govt, says Yeddyurappa
Ruling out any threat to his ministry after UPA's return to power at the Centre, Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Saturday said the opposition Congress and JD-S could not destablise the BJP government.
"I don't see any threat to my government. I don't think they (Congress and JD-S) can venture to destabilise my Government," he told PTI in an interview.
He was replying to a question whether there was any threat to his government in the wake of JD-S distancing itself from the Third Front and extending outside support to Congress-led UPA.
"Congress and JD-S were together in the state in the Lok Sabha election. What happened?" he asked and pointed out the "good performance" of BJP in the Lok Sabha polls as it won 19 of the 28 seats in the state.
Yeddyurappa, who completed a year in office, said he had no plans to recast his ministry "as of now". "I have not thought of ministry reshuffle at present. My ministers are working well. There is no rift among ministers. Our emphasis will be on toning up administration," he said.
