Bengaluru: Amid speculation over leadership change in Karnataka, the State In-Charge of BJP Arun Singh has clarified that Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai would continue in his post and there are no plans of changing the leadership.

Speaking to mediapersons l here on Tuesday May 3, Arun Singh maintained that, Bommai is a common man’s CM. He is delivering good governance under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Even people want him to be continued in his position. There is no answer for questions framed out of imagination. The issue of change of leadership in Karnataka is a matter of surmise,” he said.

Answering a question on whether CM Bommai will be projected as the CM candidate for the upcoming Assembly elections, Arun Singh said Bommai is a common man. People want Bommai to become CM again.

It is people’s wish that BJP should go to elections under the leadership of Bommai, he said.

However, BJP MLA and Cabinet post aspirant Basanagouda Patil Yatnal said that there
would be change of leadership in the State on May 10. The CM might be changed. The High Command is thinking of changing the leadership and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would take a call in that regard.

He further said that the party would go to elections in collective leadership. There is no chance of facing elections under the leadership of one man in the State, he said.

The statements have stirred a controversy and also triggered a debate in State political corridors.
