Bengaluru: Amid reports that former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa (BSY) is being slowly sidelined by the BJP top brass, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will meet Yediyurappa in a closed door meeting that is to take place between 1.15 pm and 1.45 pm on Apr.1, when Shah is expected to participate in the State BJP Core Committee meeting at Hotel Taj West End in the State capital the same day.
Taking a break from the Core Committee meeting, the two top BJP leaders will hold a one-to-one meeting for half-an-hour.
The meeting assumes significance in the backdrop of BSY’s consistent but failed efforts to make his younger son B.Y. Vijayendra, one of the State BJP’s Vice-Presidents, a Minister in the Bommai cabinet.
Shah, who has realised the potential of BSY as a mass leader of the party, is expected to convince the former CM, who has stayed aloof for some time now, to continue giving his valuable suggestions and evolving strategies to fight the Assembly polls, which is just a year away.
Shah, who has given time for his meeting with BSY, has not given time for meeting any other BJP leader of the State and as such, the Union Home Minister’s meeting with the former CM has become all the more significant, considering that the BJP top brass is said to be not sure about the capability of the present BJP leadership in Karnataka to ensure the party’s resolute victory in the 2023 Assembly polls.
Pressed and lobbied by the Lingayat seers, Yedi, the RSS Cheddi, has to pick a Lingayat successor as the CM. He picked the moustached fool Basavaraja Bomma, whose brain power and capability are numbed by the massive quantities of garlic and ully intake! Even Lingayat Yedi knows that Basavaraj Bommai got into engineering course in the BVB engineering college, which encourages Lingayat applicants, preferring them. The Lingayat seers were massively pleased with his election.
But PM Modi has other ideas. He has a harem of women like Mrs Sitharaman who will even jump from the top of the rEd vFort, if her leader orders her to do so, and so is Shobha Karandlaje , who earned Modi’s liking more through her election efforts in the UP assembly elections. Yedi, the old goat, likes his sweetheart Shobha Karandlaje as much as Modi does, and hence wants her like Modi does too, to replace the dull moustached toady Basavaraja Bommai. He will hiding his closeness with Shoba Karandlaje, also will argue that she will capture Gowdas votes! Well done, old Yedi!!
While BJP is accusing the Congress of dynasty rule citing Sonia and Rahul, Yedi wants his son to become an important minister is Shobha Karandlaje’s Karnataka cabinet. Unfortunately for the BJP, Modi abandoned his wife long time ago, and hence does not have a son-the Modi Jnr.! Otherwise, BJP would have wanted Modi Jnr to succeed his father! Similarly, Atal Bihari Vajpayee (who liked whisky as much as Nehru did!) was officially single, and hence could not pass the political power to Vajpayee Jnr!
In accusing dynasty, BJP the pot is calling the Congress the kettle, black! All of them imbeciles. Yes, this is independent Bharat!!
The saying: “Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters.. They will fight amongst themselves for power ..” is so true!!
” “Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters.. They will fight amongst themselves for power ..”
How true the above observation is, looking at the state of pathetic political machinations in Karnataka and elsewhere in India.
How did the BJP high command at the centre, notorious like the Congress high command when the Congress was in power at the Centre and States, forcing change of the CM.
Narendra Modi is as much power hungry as previous PMs of the Congress Party. He wants to reward Shoba Karandlaje, the weakness of all single old men! He could not do that for Mrs Sitharaman, as she has been a miserable failure as for as standing in an election to the state or central elected chambers-the assembly or Lok Sabha, and winning the seat. She thrives through slavish obedience of her master.
Shoba Karandlaje is an attractive alternative to the dull Bommai, whose only merit is his thick moustache sitting like a caterpillar!
