Yediyurappa

Bengaluru, Sept 19: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Saturday said he expects directions from the BJP high command by "today or tomorrow" regarding the much awaited expansion of his cabinet.

Terming his Delhi trip as "successful", the Chief Minister reiterated that his desire was to complete the process before the monsoon session of the legislature from September 21, but everything will depend on what the high command decides.

"Regarding cabinet expansion I spoke to Nadda ji (BJP President J P Nadda) for about half-an-hour yesterday, he may speak to the Prime Minister and may give directions about the future course of action today itself," Yediyurappa said.

Speaking to reporters after meeting Vice President Venkaiah Naidu in New Delhi, he said, based on the high command's directions he will decide on the cabinet expansion.

The Chief Minister who is in New Delhi since Thursday afternoon had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and several Union Ministers regarding issues concerning the development of the state.

Last night, he had met Nadda to discuss the cabinet expansion.

Responding to a question on how many will be inducted into the cabinet, Yediyurappa said, "we will have to see, based on the suggestions given by the Prime Minister and the national president, I will have to take the decision."

He said, "my desire is to complete the process before the session. So I expect they (high command) will let me know by today or tomorrow, let's see what decision they will take."

The monsoon session of the state legislature is scheduled from September 21 to 30.

Last night, Yediyurappa had even hinted at the possibility of a cabinet reshuffle, stating that it will depend on the directions from the Prime Minister and the national President.

Cabinet expansion or reshuffle is expected to be a tightrope for the 77-year old Yediyurappa, considering too many aspirants.

While several of the old guard are waiting for a chance to be inducted into the Ministry, those who defected from the Congress and JD(S) like A H Vishwanath, R Shankar and MTB Nagaraj, who are now BJP MLCs, are also aspiring for slots.

The cabinet currently has 28 members and six berths are still vacant.

Meanwhile, there are also strong speculations about the possible change in leadership in the future, considering Yediyurappa's age.

However, it has been rejected by senior party leaders like BJP state President Nalin Kumar Kateel and Minister R Ashoka among others.

As he returns to Bengaluru today, Yediyurappa also said that the Prime Minister and union ministers whom he met over the last two days have positively responded to the issues raised by him concerning the development of the state.

"I feel that this Delhi trip of mine has been very successful, from the Prime Minister to all the Ministers have positively responded to the requests that we had put forward for the development of Karnataka. I feel that they will take necessary steps in that direction soon," he said.

SIDDARAMAIAH.jpg

Bengaluru, Sept 28: In an scathing attack on BJP government in Karnataka on amendment to APMC Act and Land Reforms Act, former Chief Minister and Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah on Monday said "If you believe in these amendments, dissolve the assembly and fight for elections with these promises in your manifesto."

In a series of tweets, he said that history will remember Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Minister of Yediyurappa's cabinet as ‘Ravanas’ who killed Farmers. “What moral authority does he have to implement Land and APMC reforms when there was no mention in your manifesto?, he questioned.

“Imagine to what extent farmers have been pushed for them to protest even during a pandemic? Don’t be a pawn in the hands of crony capitalists. Repeal the amendments now and save their lives,” he added.

“Farming related amendments are the perfect example for backstabbing. When the whole country was worried about the pandemic, BJP slyly exploited the vulnerability to kill farming communities.

He further said, “Yediyurappa, Karnataka has not forgotten your orders to kill two farmers. Now, you are out to kill the entire farming community. Their tears are very strong and can destroy your arrogance.”

“You betrayed farmers in their fight for Mahadayi-Mekedatu projects. You had no spine to stand up against your party’s double-standards in river-sharing disputes. You failed to provide adequate seeds and fertilizers at the right time. Why so angry at them?” he questioned.

“Farmers never knew the green shawl that you wore during elections would eventually become white cloth on their dead dreams and rights. You are a Demon with Cow face. Yediyurapa There is still time left for you to stand with farmers. Repeal the amendments and uphold farmers’ rights. Or, If you are afraid of crony capitalists and your leaders, resign and join farmers in their protest,” said Siddaramaiah.

The Congress staged a protest in the city, KPCC Chief D K Shivakumar, AICC Chief Spokesperson incharge of party affairs in Karnataka Randeep Surjewala and others participated in the agitation.
