Bengaluru: State BJP is witnessing heavy political activity as Union Home Minister Amit Shah is arriving here late night on Monday May 2.

The visit has assumed importance in the backdrop of Shah coming with a specific mission of finalising the decision on cabinet expansion or reshuffle. He would also hold talks regarding the various happenings in the State and strategise for the State Assembly elections in 2023.

Amit Shah is also expected to clear the air regarding the leadership change issue, which has come to the forefront after the statement by party National General Secretary B. L. Santhosh. He had stated that change of leadership is the strength of BJP. The experiment had yielded good results in Punjab and Gujarat, he added.

Former Chief Minister, senior BJP leader B. S. Yediyurappa said on Monday that he would be meeting Shah. “He is visiting the State in the backdrop of the developments in the state as we have entered the election year,” he said.

Yediyurappa further said that Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would focus more on Karnataka now. They would give suggestions and directions towards winning 150 seats in the upcoming Assembly elections. “We will discuss with them,” he said.

“It is the responsibility of the Central Leaders to decide on the tickets for the Assembly elections to the sitting MLAs,” he said.

Yediyurappa maintained that there will be “no change of leadership in the State BJP” as per his knowledge. “Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is doing a good job,” he said.
