First list of BJP candidates to be released on March 16: BSY  1 Week ago

BENGALURU: BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa on Wednesday said the central leadership is expected to release the list of 22 of 28 Karnataka parliamentary constituencies by March 16.

Speaking to the media at an interaction, Yeddyurappa said the state leadership core committee will be meeting on March 15 to finalise the names for those seats for which uncertainity continues to persist over candidature, including Ballari and Kalaburgi.

“The core committee will sit and discuss the candidature for Ballari constituency. As far as Kalaburgi and Umesh Jadhav’s candidature goes, we have taken the legal opinion which suggests that there is no problem for him to contest,” said Yeddyurappa.

On Mandya, Yeddyurappa says the party is going to wait till March 18 when Sumalatha, late Congress leader Ambareesh’s wife, to take her decision.

“We will wait for Sumalatha’s decision in this regard and take a final call on Mandya candidature. But one thing is clear, after the entire episode of chief minister ensuring the transport of Ambareesh’s body to Mandya via helicopter to allow the people of the district to pay their last respect, the manner in which Sumalatha has been sidelined is condemnable,” said Yeddyurappa.

The BJP state president said he will be travelling to New Delhi on March 16 morning for a final round of talks with the central leadership and the BJP Parliamentary board to discuss the candidatures for the 28 constituencies.

False promises ensured JD(S) got 37 seats

Venting his anger against CM Kumaraswamy, Yeddyurappa said the JD(S) got 37 seats only on the premise of making false promises to the farmers of waiving farm loans.

“Till date, even after nine months of being in power, the government has waived loans to the tune of Rs 4,500 crore. The CM has made false promises to secure 37 seats during the last year elections. Had it not been for the false promises, JD(S) would not even have got 20 seats,” said Yeddyurappa.

On his public statement in Savadatti of telling the people that BJP will form the government two days after the Lok Sabha elections and that more than 20 Congress MLAs are disappointed with Kumaraswamy and not ready to accept him as their CM, Yeddyurappa asked the people to have patience.

“It is true that even now there are more than 20 Congress MLAs who are unhappy with Kumaraswamy as the CM. Wait till the Lok Sabha elections and then see what will unfold,” he said.

PM Modi to host four or five more rallies

Prime minister Narendra Modi is expected to address no less than four to five more public rallies in Karnataka ahead of the Lok Sabha elections scheduled on April 18 and April 23.

Speaking at the interaction, convenor for the prime minister’s rallies R Ashoka said the state leadership has sought the dates from the PMO for the rallies.

“We have sought for at least four to five more rallies in Karnataka. Of these,we are expecting to have one each in Bengaluru and Mysuru,” he said.
