Karnataka election

BJP stalwart and former Karnataka chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s son is likely to contest against veteran Congress leader Siddaramaiah from the Varuna seat in Mysuru in upcoming elections in the state.

Speaking at an emergency presser in Bengaluru, held day after the Election Commission announced elections in Karnataka will be held on May 10,  BS Yediyurappa—the spearhead of BJP’s poll campaign in Karnataka—revealed that high-level discussions by the saffron party’s top brass are being held to decide if his son BY Vijayendra, will be fielded from Varuna—a seat currently represented by former chief minister and Congress veteran Siddaramaiah’s son Yathindra.

Yediyurappa, who is currently in the eye of the storm over the internal reservation issue among Scheduled Castes (SC) stood by the BJP regime’s decision to implement the AJ Sadashiva panel commission’s recommendations, saying that the reservation quota for Lingayats and other communities was justified and no injustice has been done to Muslims either as they will now get reservation in the Economically Weaker Sections quota.

Yediyurappa also claimed that the Congress will not get more than 70 seats in the 224-seat Karnataka assembly.

On Monday, hundreds of protesters belonging to the Banjara community attacked the home and office of BS Yediyurappa in Shivamogga area of the state during a massive demonstration against a recent reservation decree by the Basavaraj Bommai government in the state.

Karnataka’s Basavaraj Bommai-led BJP regime has decided to implement the AJ Sadashiva panel commission report on internal reservation among SC’s. Based on the commission’s report, the Bommai government has recommended to the Centre a new breakup of the reservation for Scheduled Castes in education and jobs.

The recommendations suggest that out of the 17 percent reservation for the SC community, 6 percent be earmarked for Scheduled Castes (left), 5.5 percent for Scheduled Castes (right), 4.5 percent for “touchables” and one percent to others.

The Banjara community has demanded the Karnataka government to withdraw the proposed amendments as they would stand to lose out if the recommendations are implemented.

He further added that BJP will never let another division of the country happen. Shah was addressing a Lok Sabha election rally in Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh where he said the Congress and the Samajwadi Party preserved Article 370 for 70 years, due to which terrorism in the country increased.

Addressing the people Shah said they had made Modiji the prime minister for the 2nd time and he abrogated Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.  He compared the situation to earlier times in the valley, when the Army had to be taken along for hoisting the tricolour, at that same Lal Chowk (Jammu and Kashmir) to the situation now when the shobhayatra of Lord Krishna is being taken out. The rally was organised to garner support for B P Saroj, the BJP candidate from the Machhlishahr Lok Sabha constituency in Jaunpur.

Shah further added that the divisive policies of the Congress want to divide the country again but BJP will never let that happen again. The Union Home Minister accused the grand old party of spreading lies that if PM Modi comes to power for a 3rd time at the centre then he will abolish reservation.

Shah Pointed out that the prime minister has been in majority for the last 10 years and he did not use it to abolish reservation. Shah said, he wanted to ask (SP chief) Akhilesh Yadav and (Congress leader) Rahul Gandhi that when their government was in power for 10 years, what did Uttar Pradesh get in that period? The UPA government gave Rs 4.9 lakh crore to Uttar Pradesh in 10 years as compared to the NDA government which gave Rs 19.11 lakh crore.
