BJP MLA Basangowda Patil Yatanal has earlier accused CM Yeddyurappa of sidelining the honest and senior leaders of the party.
After 10 days of changing the Chief Minister due to the displeasure of BJP MLAs in Uttarakhand, now such demand is also coming up in Karnataka. BJP MLA in Karnataka Basangowda Patil Yatanal said that the Chief Minister should be changed in the state. The BJP cannot field Yeddyurappa in the next election. If the BJP is to survive in the state, the party must elect a new chief minister.
Protest was also held at the time of cabinet expansion
In January, seven new ministers were inducted into the Yeddyurappa government. Yet, BJP legislator Yatanal from Vijayapura City accused Yeddyurappa of sidelining the honest and senior leaders of the party. He had said that those who are blackmailing the Chief Minister are being made ministers.
At the same time, MP Renukacharya, MLA from Honnali and Political Secretary to the Chief Minister, also expressed his unhappiness with Yeddyurappa. He had said that the government and the cabinet have been reduced to only Bengaluru and Belgaum. I’m not happy, but whom should I talk to?
MLC who came to BJP and left Congress is also not happy
MLC AH Vishwanath, who left the Congress and joined the BJP, accused Yeddyurappa of not keeping promises. He had asked the Chief Minister why Excise Minister H Nagesh was left out and Munsratna, the Arasar Nagar MLA, was not included in the cabinet.
He had said that by ignoring those sacrifices you became the Chief Minister, you are making such people a minister who is facing a case of cheating. He asked if you are making such people a minister just because they are blackmailing you.
Yeddyurappa became CM after Congress-JDS government fell
Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the CM for the fourth time on 26 July 2019. He claimed to have formed the government after the Congress-backed JDS government fell. Earlier, Congress had made HD Kumaraswamy of the 37-seat party JDS, despite having 76 MLAs, as the chief minister.
Later, many MLAs of both parties broke down and joined the BJP. He was disqualified by the assembly speaker. In the subsequent by-elections, 11 rebel MLAs won. Of these, 10 were made ministers.
