Concerned over rumblings of dissent in the ruling BJP in Karnataka, party President Rajnath Singh on Saturday warned that indiscipline would not be tolerated and asserted "nobody can disturb the government".
"I am aware of all the happenings in the state," Singh told reporters answering questions on dissensions dogging the one-year-old BS Yeddyurappa government.
Singh, however, did not comment on the actions of some ministers who have been holding group meetings.
He was asked about activities by ministers from Bellary -- mine owners G Janardhana Reddy and Karunakara Reddy and B Sreeramulu, who were reportedly unhappy with Yeddyurappa, but had patched up with him later.
He gave a pat to Yeddyurappa, seated next to him, saying "our government is doing well on development front".
Singh met legislators and ministers separately, apparently to discuss problems concerning the party's first government in the southern state and asked them to remain united.
