BJP top brass mulls on appointing BSY as Maharashtra Governor

August 4, 2020

Bengaluru: With the BJP Central leadership said to be seriously considering change of leadership in the State, the party top brass is reportedly working on a gubernatorial position for B.S. Yediyurappa (BSY) and post him as Maharashtra Governor.

According to reliable sources, Yediyurappa is likely to be replaced as Karnataka CM after Aug.15 and will in all probability, be appointed as the Governor of neighbouring Maharashtra.

In order to placate Yediyurappa, the party top brass is said to be considering inducting BSY’s elder son B.Y. Raghavendra, the MP from Shivamogga in the Union Cabinet and field his (BSY) younger son B.Y. Vijayendra from Shikaripura Assembly segment after Yediyurappa quits the seat. Incidentally, Vijayendra was recently appointed as one of the ten Vice-Presidents of the State BJP.

The BJP Central leadership is reportedly looking for an alternative leader having leadership qualities akin to Yediyurappa in the BJP camp from Veerashaiva-Lingayat community, to which the CM belongs to, the sources further said.

    There you go. Congress used to do this, and this is the turn for the Saffron Party. This is nepotism and corruption. Best to retire him and send him home. Why should there be a Yedi dynasty, when we are criticising Gandhi dynasty?

  2. Mohammed Khasimi says:

    First thing is why should he be replaced? If the central leadership has a valid reason, then why are they giving ministerial breath to one son and assembly seat to another? What happen to BJP’s anti-Parivarwaad?

  3. Be warned! says:

    The BJP is worried about losing Karnataka BJP government. There are Congress MLAs who crossed the floor and became BJP members, and they want power, like for example, the wicked Ramesh Jarkiholi, an unholy Uttara Karnataka self-sh politician.Hence Amit Shah and co want to replace this old Yedi and ensure that BJP remains stable in Karnataka. The same dirty game Congress used to play.
