Is BSY’s State tour aimed at saving his public image?

Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa’s aim of touring the State tour is a plan to save his public image, as it is inevitable for him to shape the political future of his two sons. Despite the fact that he is not in power, Yediyurappa intends to visit the State in order to strengthen his party.

Soon after resigning, Yediyurappa stated that he would not join the guiding board, following in the footsteps of senior leaders L. K. Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi, and others. He also stated that he would not accept the governorship if offered by the Union Government. His son B. Y. Raghavendra is an MP, while his other son B. Y. VIjayendra is the BJP’s State Unit Vice President. During the 2014 assembly election, Yediyurappa wanted to get an assembly ticket for his son Vijayendra from the Varuna Constituency, but the party High Command rejected his nomination.

Since 1983 to 2021, Yediyurappa has been active in State politics and not taken a break. From 2006 to 2011, and again from 2019 to 2021, Yediyurappa was in power for seven years. Even though he was in the opposition for many years, he organised the party by touring. According to his closest aides, he never stopped working during his whole political career, whether he was in power or not.

Despite the fact that Yediyurappa is a member of the Lingayat community, he had established himself as a State-level leader. He wants to interact with people by getting involved in politics. As a result, he wants to save his image as a mass leader at least until the next assembly elections.

MLAs thronged Yediyurappa’s house despite his declaration that no one should come to meet him for a Cabinet post and that he would not interfere in the Cabinet. When Bommai was elected CM, he undoubtedly became the BJP’s power centre. According to his close aides, Yediyurappa wants to keep his position as the power centre and play a key role in the distribution of tickets in the upcoming assembly election.

At the age of 78, Yediyurappa is planning his State tour, which will begin after the Ganesh Chaturthi holiday.  According to family sources, Yediyurappa, who has been sick with the Corona virus twice, has immediate plans of spendimg a week at a resort with his family.

By touring the State, he wants to send a strong message to his party’s opponents that his political dominance has not ended. He also wants to build the foundation for his two son’s political future.
