"Chief Minister will be changed soon as most of the senior leaders in the state are not happy with BS Yediyurappa. PM Modi also said that the next Chief Minister will be from North Karnataka," Yatnal said at a public gathering in Vijayapura on Monday.

thanks to tough stand taken by the state police, several people associated with the drug trafficking had been
attested.

"The BJP government will not rest until Karnataka is free from drug menace," he said.

Alleging that the Congress party had always tried to divide the society and generate animosity between
people of different religions the state BJP president said that "it was revealed when Siddaramaiah had tried
to divide the Lingayath community".

The previous Congress government had started celebrating Tippu birth ceremony, only to please
the minority community in the state, he said.

The Congress leaders infighting had resulted in the unprecedented riots and arson which took place
in the DG halli and KG Halli riots, the BJP leader said.
