"There is no question of destabilising (the government). Already the Congress is split due to infighting and the only thing left before us is to send them packing back to their homes," he told reporters here after assuming the charge.

"In fact, the Congress is disunited compared to BJP as there is no unity among their ministers, and hardly any enthusiasm among the bureaucrats to work," Yeddyurappa said.

Responding to a query, Yeddyurappa said "the opposition is strong and will fight against the corrupt Siddaramaiahgovernment by strengthening the BJP in next two years before the state goes for the assembly polls."

Asked how he would bring the party back to power in the state, Yeddyurappa said he would travel to all the areas in the state and strengthen the party and remind the people of the 'scam-free' government when he was the Chief Minister, compared "to corrupt administration of the present Congress government".

Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers Ananth Kumar said Yeddyurappa would be the Chief Minister if the party wins the next assembly polls.
