New Delhi: Except BSY, no Assembly poll ticket for sitting BJP MPs


New Delhi, Mar 17 (DHNS): After the massive victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, BJP has started the ground work on winning Karnataka and has decided not to field any sitting MPs, barring B S Yeddyurappa, in the Assembly polls next year.

Several MPs including Pratap Simha, Shobha Karandlaje, B Sriramulu, P C Mohan, Karadi Sanganna, Suresh Angadi, Ananth Kumar Hegde and G M Siddeshwara have expressed their inclination to fight Assembly polls, due early next year, by quitting Parliament membership.

While rejecting their pleas, the party’s national president Amit Shah reportedly told the state leaders the prime minister does not want bypolls for Lok Sabha seats, when the country is going to face general elections in 2019.



With Shivamogga MP, Yeddyurappa, being the state president and the party having declared him as the chief ministerial candidate, he will be allowed to contest the Assembly elections, Shah reportedly told the state leaders, asking the MPs to work hard for the victory of the party candidates in their respective Lok Sabha segments.

“Some MPs are desperately trying to become MLAs as they are feeling isolated in Delhi as they are not well versed in Hindi.

Besides, a few leaders feel they were irrelevant in national politics as it is always dominated by politicians from the Hindi heartland,” said an MP.

Shah is likely to take the responsibility of distribution of tickets, instead of leaving it to state leaders. With the party’s victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, dissident activities will come to a halt and all state leaders will fall in line, a senior leader said.

    As a MP both are hardly visiting coastal region and cannot understand real problems of coastal (for us they are just useless). Better let them contest in State Assembly in other places, but definitely not at coastal region.

    So that we are getting the chance to elect costal based candidate for both MPs & MLAs.

    I feel, NiddeYurappa will issue MLA ticket to Sobakka to make her Minister ( her MP seat might go for JP Hegde). If this happens, it will be big disappointment for MLA CT Ravi and Sunil Kumar, who are eyeing on MP ticket.

    Pure day dreaming! I wish JD(s) and Congress come together and see that BJP does not even win a single seat. For the mental, physical and social health of Karnataka the state needs a BJP mukt Karnataka. Other parties are corrupt but they are not ideologically bankrupt and morally immoral.

    BJP all set to fight and win the elections. Their first agenda during election campaign is COW slaughter ban (and boost beef export is Andhar ki baat hey). They wanted the Governor to sign the bill they made during 2008 to 2013.
