Bengaluru: Janardhan Reddy not with BJP - no idea about case - Yeddyurappa

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Nov 8: Former minister, Gali Janardhan Reddy, who is out on bail in illegal mining case, is reportedly facing fresh trouble in the form of money laundering case. However, he appears to be fighting a lone battle, having been disowned by BJP leadership.

Former chief minister and state BJP president, B S Yeddyurappa, said that Janardhan Reddy is not associated with BJP. When questioned about his reaction about the new case in which Reddy has been entangled, he chose to say that he has only read certain newspaper reports about it. "Other than what I have read in newspapers, I do not have any knowledge about this case. Those who commit wrongs face consequences as per law," he commented.

It is said that BJP national leadership has already decided how the state leaders should react to the situation in which Reddy is facing a fresh case. It is said that the leaders have been properly educated about the way they have to handle issues connected with Reddy. Therefore, Yeddyurappa, who the Reddy brothers looked upon as their close friend once upon a time, seems to be obeying the orders of the party leaders.

It may be recalled that Janardhan Reddy's close friend and Molakalmuru MLA, B Sriramulu, had said when approached, that he was damn tired by the election work and that he does not know anything about Reddy's case. "No one is above law," he had commented.
