Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa’s announcement that his son B. Y. Vijayendra will contest from the Shikaripura constituency in the 2023 State Assembly election has left the party red-faced. The party distanced itself from his announcement.

On Friday July 22, Yediyurappa announced that he is vacating the constituency for his son. However, he didn’t mention from which party he will contest raising several questions.

N. Ravi Kumar, BJP State General Secretary who is considered as close to the BSY made it clear that the party has not announced a ticket for any.

“On BSY’s announcement party State Unit President Nalin Kumar Kateel will respond,” he said.

According to sources, BSY is upset with the party national leaders for not accommodating his son in the State Cabinet. He is also worried about Vijayendra’s political future fearing that the party may not give him a ticket. “So, it is a tactical move by the BSY,” explained BJP leader to NewsKarnataka.

“It is the real Master Stroke by BSY. BJP can’t win the State without him. He is aware of this and making the decision,” he added.
