Audio clip hints at BS Yediyurappa exit; BJP state chief Nalin Kumar Kateel denies link | Mangaluru News – Times of India

MANGALURU: Less than 24 hours after chief minister BS Yediyurappa spiked speculation about his rumoured resignation, an audio clip hints at his exit along with senior leaders.
The clip is purportedly of a phone conversation between BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel and a confidant.
This leaked clip comes a day after Yediyurappa returned to Bengaluru following a visit to Delhi meeting party brass and said CM change didn’t figure in their talks.
Though the clip doesn’t mention Yediyurappa directly, the reference to “removal of the entire team” hints at leadership change.
Kateel, whose voice could not be authenticated by TOI, says: “Don’t tell anybody. The entire team of (Jagadish) Shettar and Eshwarappa will be removed. We are making a new team. For the time being, I will tell not to give (it to) anybody right now (probably responding to the other person’s question about change of leadership). Don’t be afraid, now it’s our time. Three names are there, but they won’t be considered. They’ll put (appoint) from Delhi itself.”
Kateel in Delhi said he had no connection with the clip. He said he would come to Bengaluru on Monday, meet the chief minister and seek a probe into the clip.
