New CM for State? Pralhad Joshi as CM, B.Y. Vijayendra as Dy.CM; Yediyurappa as Puducherry Governor

  • | Monday | 10th May, 2021

These scams have embarrassed the ruling party and even the Union Government has come under severe censure by the people who are bearing the brunt of the virus outbreak.

There are murmurs of a possible change in leadership in Karnataka and political circles are abuzz with talk that Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa could be changed by the BJP High Command citing his age-related problems.

Yediyurappa is 78 and way past the BJP’s unwritten 75-year-limit rule for leaders to hold constitutional posts. Pressure on Yediyurappa is piling up from the Opposition as well as within BJP and the chorus seeking his resignation has only got louder. Anything might happen at any moment in Karnataka, say sources.

The High Command is considering the name of Union Minister Pralhad Joshi for the post of CM. The names of Deputy CM Dr. C.N. Ashwathnarayan, Minister V. Somanna and rebel Basanagouda Patil Yatnal are also being considered.

Bommai and Vijayendra also took State Advocate General Prabhuling Navadagi and a Supreme Court Advocate along with them and talks are on in New Delhi.

The BJP High Command has moved decisively to protect the party’s image in the wake of deepening or call it worsening COVID-19 situation in Karnataka where things have gone out of control.

The High Command is in damage-control mode and wants to enforce a change of guard. Amit Shah and Arun Singh are holding separate talks and sources said that the party bosses are toying with the idea of making Vijayendra the Deputy CM and posting Yediyurappa as the Puducherry Governor.
