A new twist has come in the politics of Karnataka on Monday. BJP leader and state CM BS Yediyurappa resigned from the post of CM. After this political development, another interesting thing is to be seen which leader the BJP hands over the command of the state.
There was a meeting between JP Nadda and Amit Shah in the Parliament House and the face of the new Chief Minister of Karnataka was discussed. BJP will decide the name of the observer by this evening, who will go to Karnataka in the next day or two. By the end of this week, a decision will be taken on the name of the Chief Minister, till then Yediyurappa will be the caretaker Chief Minister of the state. According to sources, Dharmendra Pradhan will be the observer.
Discuss these three names
As of Sunday, three names had surfaced as the next chief minister. The first name is Basavaraj Bommai, who comes from the Lingayat community and is currently the Home Minister as well as Parliamentary Affairs Minister and Law Minister in the Karnataka government. The second name is of Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri, who is a Brahmin and is the Speaker of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly. The third name is the Union Minister of Coal Mining and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi.
It is believed that the RSS also wants to replace Yeddyurappa with another minister or MLA coming from the Lingayat community as the chief minister. But sources tell that this time BJP is also thinking of making a non-Lingayat chief minister.
Lingayat saints did not demand removal
Amidst the removal of Yeddyurappa from the post of CM, more than 500 Lingayat saints had demanded not to remove Yeddyurappa. On Sunday, Sant Sri Shivamurthy Sharanaru of Muruga Math said in a press conference that we want him (Yeddyurappa) to continue as CM, but this decision is on the high command (BJP). He also said that the BJP high command will take an appropriate decision.
