Topic: B. S. Yediyurappa
Speaking at BJP executive meeting in Davanagere Sunday, Yediyurappa also warned that if party doesn’t win 2 upcoming bypolls, it will not send the right message.
Tourism Minister Anand Singh and Municipal Administration & Small Scale Industries' Minister N Nagaraj have expressed displeasure over their portfolio, and sought "weighty" ones.
Basavaraj Bommai, 61, is a close confidante of Yediyurappa and a Lingayat leader like him. He will take oath as Karnataka CM Wednesday.
BJP chief Nadda said Yediyurappa is 'taking care of things in his own way,' in contrast to Karnataka CM saying he will decide upon receiving directions from BJP high command.
Yediyurappa said that the BJP high command will decide on action against MLC A H Vishwanath for statements against the CM's younger son and party vice president B Y Vijayendra.
Karnataka BJP chief Nalin Kumar Kateel however said that an explanation will be sought from Tourism Minister C P Yogeeshwara about his disgruntlement against the CM.
The 78-year-old minister was earlier hospitalised on 2 August, 2020 after testing positive for Covid. He requested all those who had come in contact with him recently to quarantine.
Karnataka has seen a spike in Covid cases since the beginning of this month and is reporting nearly 7,000 fresh cases per day for the last couple of days.
B.Y. Vijayendra, the Karnataka BJP vice-president, says Yediyurappa and BJP are synonymous; CM will complete term, deliver what he promised to people.
The complaint alleged that Yediyurppa, during his tenure as Karnataka CM from 2008-12, illegally de-notified 20 acres of land to give undue favours to private parties.
