BANGALORE: Beleaguered former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa on Friday chose to attack his mentor BJP president Nitin Gadkari by maintaining that AICC president Sonia Gandhi could be trusted than the former when it comes to fulfilling promises.
An agitated Yeddyurappa, whose claim for the state BJP president’s post has been ignored by the party, said the Congress was better at fulfilling promise than his own party. “One has to learn a lesson or two from the Congress leaders when it comes to keeping up promises. Congress leaders from Jawaharlal Nehru to Sonia have kept up their assurances given to their members. They never let down their leaders on false allegations. You (Gadkari) have promised so many things to me. But without any reason you have not kept up your promise,” he told reporters while referring to reported Gandkari’s promise of making him as state party chief.
