BJP legislators to pick new CM nominee: Minister K S Eshwarappa


Chitradurga, Jul 23 (IANS): Amid talk of a change of leadership in Karnataka, state Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister, K.S. Eshwarappa on Friday said the Bharatiya Janata Party high command will not impose its decision concerning the CM nominee on the party. Instead, the party's legislature meeting will elect the new Chief Minister as and when the leadership change takes place in the state, he added.

On the sidelines of a one-day workshop for Panchayat Development Officers (PDOs), Gram Panchayat Presidents and Vice Presidents of Chitradurga district here, Eshwarappa said the media is busy making wrong presumptions about the BJP's functioning style.

"Ours is a democratic and disciplined party. Nothing is imposed from the top unlike in other parties. We follow the procedures. BJP central leaders will announce a CM nominee only after consulting each and every MLA and also the leaders concerned," he said responding to a query.

Reiterating Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa's statement, Eshwarappa said Yediyurappa has himself clarified that he would not be suggesting any replacements for the CM's chair as this matter has to be decided collectively by the party and not by any individual.

"Whenever leadership is changed in Karnataka this time, it will be a collective decision and not any individual's decision," he added.

Responding to a query, Eshwarappa said the Lingayat seers must know that the demand for change in leadership was raised by none other than leaders from their own community.

"Those (seers) who are talking in support of Yediyurappa now should have acted when their own community leaders were talking ill about him, raising the change in leadership row. These seers should have stopped them, now it really does not matter when Yediyurappa himself has said he would abide by the party's central leaders' orders," he added.

    BJP in Karnataka after Yeddy will be like the scene from State pe satta where after taking his share of food Amitabh Bachhan says attack..!! Every Tom dick and Harry wants to CM,DCM,HM and what not. Most don't even know proper basic administration. People like Sriramulu who doesn't even know proper Kannada being a kannadiga wants to be a DCM. Karnataka is cursed,never get proper Govts. This govt is also going to collapse like a a bunch of cards in no time. Shobhakka just like Hema Malini will shout in her amazing Hindi that she knows,"jaanwar ho tum sab log jaanwar..."

    Choose anyone you want but capable leader to run your party and state, the leader should have the backing and support of his party MLAs, otherwise kummaraswamy will be the chief minister again.
