The market of speculation about the change in leadership in Karnataka is once again hot. Now the discussion of making the Chief Minister from the Depressed Classes in the state is in full swing. It is expected that by this evening the BJP high command can take a decision on this. Meanwhile, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has given a big statement. Yediyurappa said that I hope to get suggestions from the high command by evening. Only the high command will decide about this. You will also get to know about their decision. I’m not worried about it.
High command will decide after July 26
For the past several weeks, there has been speculation about Yeddyurappa’s removal from the post. Amidst all this, he said on 22 July that he has not been asked to resign till now. Here is a program on 26th July to mark the completion of two years of our government. After this, whatever BJP President JP Nadda decides, I will follow it.
On July 16, suddenly came to meet PM Modi.
Earlier, Yediyurappa had reached Delhi on July 16 and met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The sudden meeting had fueled speculation about Yeddyurappa’s resignation. After this he met BJP President JP Nadda, Home Minister Amit Shah and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.
Why the speculation of Yediyurappa’s resignation?
Rejected the offer of the post of Governor of Bengal
If sources are to be believed, Yediyurappa was also offered the post of Governor in West Bengal, but Yediyurappa clearly told Prime Minister Modi that you should resign if you want, but the post of Governor is not acceptable in West Bengal. Actually, Yediyurappa does not want to retire from Karnataka politics until he gets his son declared as the chief ministerial candidate.
Does BJP not have an alternative to Yeddyurappa in Karnataka?
Yeddyurappa has already shown his political status
Yediyurappa resigned from the BJP on 31 July 2011. On 30 November 2012, he formed his own party named Karnataka Janata Paksha. In fact, Yediyurappa’s move was led by the Lokayukta’s investigation into the illegal mining case. Yeddyurappa’s name came up in this investigation. The BJP had to bear the loss for this. Yediyurappa again joined the BJP in 2014.
After this, during the political drama in Karnataka in 2018, he became the Chief Minister for the first two and a half days and left power after an emotional speech. Then again in 2019, the process of becoming the Chief Minister by proving majority had also increased Yeddyurappa’s stature in front of the high command.
