Bengaluru: Home Minister M B Patil on Wednesday said that he would wilfully support BS Yeddyurappa become the chief minister if he joins the Congress party. He was responding to a remark made by BJP legislator C T Ravi, who said that M B Patil should support Yeddyurappa to become the chief minister if he feels that injustice has been done to Lingayats. "I am in Congress and Yeddyurappa is in a different party. If he joins the Congress, I will definitely help him become the chief minister," said Patil. Regarding senior Congress leader Ramalinga Reddy's outburst against the party leadership, Patil said that Reddy is an asset for the party. "He is a loyal party person and question of him quitting the party does not arise. The party leaders should respect his feelings and sentiments," he said adding that he would soon be talking to Reddy. On the implementation of Raghavendra Auradkar report, Patil said that the same will be discussed on June 10 at a meeting, chaired by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.
