Mangaluru, May 30, 2020: BJP State President Nalin Kumar Kateel on Saturday clarified that there is no confusion or misunderstanding between the leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party and that all are busy with the fight against coronavirus.
Speaking to newsmen here, his comments came after political circles in the state were agog with talk of dissidence within the BJP after a dozen its MLAs met at senior leader Umesh Katti’s residence to savour north Karnataka’s staple ‘rotti oota’ on Thursday, May 28.
“We are all united with Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and also sure that he will complete his term. BJP government has already proved that it is pro-people and all our programs are for the welfare of the people,” said Nalin. All the MLAs are supporting the chief minister. All the MLAs are in contact with me, claimed Kateel.
Indiscipline within the party will not be tolerated. Strict action will be initiated against those who indulge in such activities by the party High Command, he warned.
To a query, Kateel said few more flights will be ferrying stranded people from various countries to Mangaluru. All the necessary preparations had been made to quarantine the people arriving from foreign countries.
