To woo Shaiv voters of Karnataka, PM, BJP CMs to visit Kedarnath

B.S. Yeddyurappa Amit Shah

The BJP national leadership's decision at the penultimate hour to not allow the party's Karnataka state president and chief minister candidate B S Yeddyurappa to field his younger son as candidate from Varuna constituency was meant to send a message to the Lingayat strongman and others that they can not take unilateral decisions, and that the high command is supreme, according to BJP insiders. As the BJP state president left the stage after making the announcement, angry workers got on to the dais and damage furniture. From Congress side, Dr. Yatheendra Siddaramaiah will be contesting from Varuna constituency. While Sriramulu been given this as a second seat to contest, Yeddyurappa's son BY Vijayendra has been denied a ticket.

"The state Lokayukta's report of July 27, 2011 led to the removal of Yeddyurappa as the BJP's first Chief Minister in the south on July 31, 2011".

H D Kote BJP candidate Siddaraju said that they would wait and watch for the next 2 hours and will decide the next step based on the decision of the BJP high command.

The Ocala Police Department, the sheriff's office, the Florida Highway Patrol and the FBI were investigating the shooting. Students who saw anything related to the shooting were separated so they could be interviewed by investigators.

On Thursday, Yeddyurappa filed his nomination accompanied by a group of supporters in Shivamogga, while a day later Siddaramaiah too finished the formalities in Mysuru even as his party workers were engaged in an eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation with rival JD (S) activists. The ticket for the Varuna constituency is likely to be given to a Zilla Panchayat member, Sadanand. Through IT they are threatening our party leaders. Why there is not IT raid on Jagadish Shettar's house. "But I thought, instead of limiting him to just one constituency, he should work in several to make sure the BJP comes to power", he told reporters in Mysore.

The Varuna seat was held by Siddaramaiah for the last 10 years and was vacated to allow Yathindra to launch his political career. K Shekharappa, who was the Congress candidate against Yeddyurappa in three elections, is now an active member of the BJP camp in Shikaripur. Earlier, some of his supporters exerted pressure on the party's emissaries - Prakash Javadekar and Muralidhar Rao - who rushed to Mysuru for a firefighting mission. Mr Yeddyurappa has said any candidate fielded from the constituency, now represented in the assembly by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, will win.

It was expected that Varuna was going to witness the big fight between the sons of Siddaramaiah and Yeddyurappa in the upcoming assembly elections, but that won't happen now.
