Yeddyurappa may take on Siddharamaiah at Badami

April 21, 2018

Bengaluru:  Speculation is rife in the State BJP circles that party’s chief ministerial candidate B.S. Yeddyurappa may contest from Badami in Bagalkot district if Chief Minister Siddharamaiah decides to contest from there.

Sources in the party said BJP National President Amit Shah has indicated that Yeddyurappa will be pitted against Siddharamaiah from Badami in case the latter decides to contest from two constituencies — Chamundeshwari and Badami.

The party is also considering fielding either its Nayaka community leader B. Sriramulu or businessman Vijay Sankeshwar from Badami. Sankeshwar belongs to the Lingayat community. The name of BJP MP Gaddigoudar is also making the rounds as the likely candidate from the constituency.

      Mr. Jacob has said it right! Compared to earlier Chief Ministers of Karnataka, Mr. Siddaramaiah stands better. I am not saying, he is the best, but relatively he is good and decent. Karnataka’s last 5 years were peaceful with not serious scams reported, unlike during Yeddi’s regime. Even now Yeddy is going with Reddys who looted our state’s natural resources. Yeddy himself went to jail on corruption charges. Reddy’s aides Sriramulu, Karunakara Reddy, Somashekara Reddy have all got tickets now. What does it mean ? In case Yeddy gets majority, we will once again see the Reddy brothers ruling the state!
      Let us give chance to a relatively better party!
