BS Yediyurappa: Anonymous letter seeks honorable exit for CM BS Yediyurappa | Bengaluru News


BENGALURU: While Prime Minister BS Yediyurappa prepares to celebrate his 77th birthday on February 27, the voices of dissent in the state unit of the BJP on his style of operation are becoming stronger.
A section of the party is questioning its capabilities to lead the government. An anonymous and unsigned letter, calling for a change in leadership citing his age and health, has gone viral on social media.
The letter, which was supposedly written by connoisseurs of Yediyurappa, praises him for having built the party from scratch in the state while expressing concern about his age. “Age is affecting your health. Despite the best efforts, his body does not respond to the rigors of his role. He must be given an honorable exit from active politics and become governor of a state, “said the letter, which has been going around for the past two days.
The letter also refers to the alleged interference of his family members in his administration and calls one of his children “Super CM”.
Shettar: The meeting did not discuss BSY
An apartment near Shivananda Circle has become a center of power. The MLA, ministers, officials and industrialists are being ordered by Yediyurappa to meet the Super CM, ”the letter claimed.
This occurs in the context of a meeting of some BJP MLA and leaders on Monday night at the home of former CM Jagadish Shettar. It is believed that they expressed their dissatisfaction with the fact that Yediyurappa failed to induce high-ranking leaders to his cabinet while rewarding almost all renegades with ministerial berths.
However, Shettar denied that the meeting was convened to talk about Yediyurappa. “I am a minister. Several legislators come to meet me every day. On Monday, 4-5 lawmakers had come for their work. I talked to them and they left, ”said Shettar.
According to sources, eight times BJP MLA Umesh Katti (Hukkeri) and Shankar Patil Munenakoppa (Navalgund) were among those who met at the Shettar residence on Monday.
