Bengaluru: Baig promised MLC berth - Agrees to campaign for BJP candidate


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Nov 20: It is gathered that chief minister, B S Yediyurappa, has promised to make Roshan Baig a member of the legislative council soon. In exchange, Baig has agreed to work for the success of BJP candidate, Sharavana, in Shivajinagar constituency here. It is said that to accommodate deputy chief minister Laxman Savadi, Roshan Baig and R Shankar, who happen to be disqualified MLAs, in the legislative council, three MLCs close to Yediyurappa, Lehar Singh, Ravikumar, and Rudre Gowda have reportedly agreed to sacrifice their seats.

Everyone was surprised when Roshan Baig was not fielded by the BJP from Shivajinagar seat. It is now being said that the BJP wanted to stay clear of the controversy which would have been created if Baig, who has been named in the IMA scam, was given the ticket. Now, the plan is to field Baig from the party if his name is cleared by the agencies in the said scam. If that is not possible, Baig would be fielded as an independent and his victory would be ensured by the BJP.

During his discussions with the chief minister, Roshan Baig is understood to have said that it would be hard to suddenly take a soft stance towards the BJP after being a vehement critic of the saffron party for long. He therefore offered to work clandestinely to ensure the victory of BJP candidate, Saravana. As part of the plan, Baig's supporters will campaign for the BJP.

Reports say that Ravikumar, who has the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad background, has readily agreed to leave his seat for the survival of the government. Lehar Singh and Rudre Gowda are close confidantes of Yediyurappa and therefore he will not find it hard to convince them to resign, sources say.

    Baig should change in name as Corrupt Baig. He he cheated his own people for money + seat. Shame on you Donkey Baig. I never thought that you are so hungry of power +_ money. May be you are ready to change your belief also.

    BJP should not allow unfiltered inlet to criminal elements from other political parties. What is the difference between BJP and Congress if Mr. Baig a persona non grata for later is openly admitted by the former for the sake of a short term imaginary benefits....?

    When a tyre has so many punctures, it's better to change the tyre itself rather than repairing the damaged tyre again and again. It's extremely risky and sooner or later the tyre will burst when driving in full speed killing everyone.

    This is the quality of hypocrite or munafiq. He got lot of opportunities in every party but his choice of joining fascist bjp should not be acceptable.Muslims of shivajinagar must boycott him

    Nazeer
    U r not the judge to declare which party is fascist or not. When majority ppl r in favour favour of a party it is natural that ppl join that party. Everyone is free to join to a party which he /she feels good
    It is as simple as that
    When "kage" 4 time MLA from BJP can be accepted as khangress candidate what is wrong in roshan joining /supporting BJP

    If Mr Roshan Baig is acceptable for BJP as MLC, then why BJP hesitated to give him by poll ticket?
