Is BSY being sidelined? Why BJP National leadership drops BYV name?

Legislative Council elections scheduled on June 3.

Is it an appeal to karyakarthas or warning to party big brass?

Bengaluru, May 24:The BJP national leadership on Tuesday announced candidates for the upcoming June 3 Legislative Council elections.

The announcement of the list by BJP national leadership on Tuesday
came as a major setback to former CM B S Yediyurappa as the party national leadership refused to field B Y Vijayendra – who is vice president of the BJP state unit – as a candidate for the MLC elections slated on June 3.

Vijayendra is the second son of Yediyurappa. According to reports, Vijayendra name was recommended by the state BJP core core committee.

The announced list sans the name of Vijayendra has naturally irked the supporters and followers of Vijayendra and would fuel protests and dharnas.

Meanwhile, Vijayendra has issued a public appeal to karyakarthas and supporters to stay calm, cool and not to post.

With this BYV has issued a mild warning to party big brass.

Unnecessary comments on social media and elsewhere will not only damage the reputation of our party but also hurt the sentiments of Sri. Yediyurappa ji and myself.

We will have to abide by party’s decision. Our party has and will never let down tose who have potential to contribute to the party. Therefore I appeal to all karyakartas
to conduct themselves with patience and dignity.

The BJP has selected former Deputy CM Laxman Savadi, secretary of the BJP state unit Hemalatha Nayak, president of BJP SC Morcha Chalavadi Narayaswamy and S Keshavaprasad.

The BJP can win four of the seven seats of the Legislative Council for which MLAs will elect the members.

Senior leader Basavaraj Horatti, who recently quit the JD(S) to join the BJP, will be the party’s candidate for the Karnataka West Teacher’s constituency election scheduled June 13.
