The developments come at a time when Yediyurappa already finds himself in a corner over the recent sex-scandal involving Ramesh Jarkiholi, non-performance of his two-year-old government, cash crunch and growing calls for his removal among other problems.
KS Eshwarappa, a cabinet minister in the Karnataka government on Wednesday accused chief minister BS Yediyurappa of interference by bypassing departmental rules and running an authoritarian administration among other charges.
In a strongly worded letter to Karnataka Governor Vajubai Vala on Wednesday, Eshwarappa said that the chief minister had indiscriminately sanctioned funds to various MLAs and other people in violation of rules.
“I want to bring to your kind notice, some of the recent actions of our Respected Chief minister relating to my Department, which amounts to direct interference in the affairs of Ministers-in-charge of Departments, in clear violation of Karnataka (Transaction of Business) Rules, 1977 and also against the established practices and procedures relating to the affairs of the state administration,” Eshwarappa, who is the minister for Rural Development and Panchayat Raj said in his letter.
