Safe in the seat as long as I have Modi, Shah’s backing: Yediyurappa

Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, on Friday, was seen making strong claims in an attempt to take a dig at his detractors. The BJP supporting CM said that he would continue as chief minister as long as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have confidence in him. This was said by him to get back at all those leaders who are saying that he will be replaced with someone. He also said that he will come out of all the legal battles as far as he is backed by the two.

“I want to use this opportunity to scotch such rumours by asserting that as long people are with me, and PM Modi and Home Minister Shah are backing me, nobody in the state will be able to ever replace me. I am ready to face 100s of legal cases. I am not worried at all as none other than Modi and Shah have reposed faith in me. That will not be shaken by anyone,” he said.


Yediyurappa also responded to the several statements made by the Leader of Opposition Siddaramaiah saying that the leader is aware of the things and how cases are being filed falsely against politicians.
