BJP's Sop For Yeddyurappa Jr As It Refuses Him Karnataka Contest

Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 On Son BY Vijayendra Being Denied BJP Ticket From Varuna Yeddyurappa Says'It's My Decision

In the wake of the BJP's fourth list of candidates for the Karnataka assembly elections, party's chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa announced that his son Vijayendra won't contest against Congress Chief Minister Siddarmaiah's son Yatheendra from Varuna constituency.

It is worth mentioning here that to woo this politically influential community which was expected to support B S Yeddyurappa (also a Lingayat leader) led BJP in the ensuing polls, the State Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in a surprising move, considered as a master stroke by many accepted the proposal to grant minority status to Lingayats. Varuna, a rural area with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as its current legislator, was prepping for weeks for a show down between Mr Siddaramaiah's son, Dr Yathindra Siddaramaiah, a pathologist by training, and BY Vijayendra, the son of the BJP's presumptive Chief Minister, BS Yeddyurappa. The central leadership was told that Yeddyurappa's son, Raghavendra is already an MLA from Shikharipur.

Yeddyurappa made the announcement at Nanjanagudu, near Mysuru, during a meeting.

A Bangalore-based party leader, however, said the state president couldn't take such decisions. Karnataka will go to polls on May 12.

B Sriramulu, a close aide of Yeddyurappa, is likely to be pitted against the Chief Minister in Badami.

The photographs of the suspects are based on descriptions by witnesses, police chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun told reporters. Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman had appealed to Egypt to refuse the Palestinian request.

He was later brought down the stage and villagers said that Gaviyappa was upset that all the efforts to secure the Varuna ticket to Vijayendra had failed. He was followed by D V Sadananda Gowda and Jagadish Shettar - for just over 300 days each - in the BJP government. Yes, leaders like Srinivas Prasad and Vishwanath have switched sides, but remember he steered the party to victory in Nanjangud and Gundlupet bypolls recently without them.

The poster reads, "When loyal workers do not have the way to put candidates of their choice, then they have no other choice than to vote for NOTA".

No word yet on Varuna seat. The BJP has not so far officially announced any candidate for Varuna. Earlier, some of his supporters exerted pressure on the party's emissaries - Prakash Javadekar and Muralidhar Rao - who rushed to Mysuru for a firefighting mission.

The contest at Varuna, now held by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, was expected to be a face-off between his son Dr Yatheendra Siddaramaiah and Yeddyurappa junior.

Later, the BJP sent the "B form" by air as the decision over his candidacy was taken.
