Bengaluru, May 13: The BJP State Core Committee being held in the city on Saturday will decide on the party candidates for the ensuing elections to the State Legislative Council and Raj Sabha, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai told reporters in Bengaluru on Friday.

Speaking to media persons, he said the issues pertaining to MLC and RS candidates has already been discussed with State BJP President Nalin Kumar Kateel on Thursday.

The core committee will discuss the selection of candidates and finalise the names candidates at the meeting being held on Saturday, Bommai said.

Earlier in the morning, the Chief Minister visited the residence of his predecessor BS Yediyurappa and held discussions with him.

The Chief Minister said the elections to the local bodies, especially taluk and zilla panchayats will be subject to Supreme Court’s decision even though in the Madhya Pradesh case it has directed that elections must be held in 15 days.

However, the State needs to examine reservation to backward classes on legal as well as constitutional provisions, he said.

Bommai said the government must know whether the elections can be held after the submission of the report by the commission appointed to study the reservation issue or follow the previous reservation list. ``We have submitted a plea in the apex court seeking time limit for the commission to complete its work and overall clarity is necessary,’’ he said.

“We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will accept our request,’’ he said.

Later, the Chief Minister inaugurated the national conference in connection with the 4th World Madiga Day.

Union Minister A Narayanaswamy, State Water Resources Minister Govind M Karjol, Public Works Department Additional Chief Secretary Anil Kumar, Basavamurthy Madara Chennaiah Swamy, former minister H Anjaneya, former Chief Secretary Ratnaprabha and others participated.

    PLEASE tell me , where there is no scam: soon Karnataka will see like Sri Lanka's ongoing political turmoil triggered by the state's unprecedented economic crisis. Finally scams started in premier central civil service of India, like IAS & IPS. No participation in issues of national interest or any concern over fuel prices and prices of basic commodities . Ever since Bommai became CM, he is over engaged or committed with issues of, 40 % Burkha, Petha development, Anti-conversion bill, BD role in society, Azan prayer call (loud speaker volume) Saffron flag, halal Meat . trade etc etc , soon politicians will burn like in sri lanka
