He, however, refused to hold them responsible for the bitter defeat of the party in the recently concluded assembly election in Karnataka.
Speaking to reporters here on Monday, Eshwarappa said, “Indiscipline was highly uncommon in the ‘disciplined’ BJP but after the defeat, it has lurked because of dissatisfaction among the leaders and workers on the ground.”
However, he communicated it with state party chief Nalin Kumar Kateel and would speak to those who have all made out-of-the-turn comments.
