Bengaluru: BJP State President Nalin Kumar Kateel on Tuesday May 24 said that the High Command has chosen the candidates from the list sent by state BJP unit. “This is my team,” he said.
Core Committee has recommended the name of State BJP Vice-President and Former Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa’s son, B. Y. Vijayendra unanimously. “He has other opportunities in the party. All calculations are made while issuing tickets. Vijayendra is Vice-President of the party and has more responsibilities,” he said.
Meanwhile, B. Y. Vijayendra urged his supporters to exercise restraint after they launched a social media campaign against the BJP for denying a ticket to him for the June 3 MLC bypoll.
Yediyurappa was hopeful of getting MLC ticket and ensured the entry of his son into State Cabinet with a prominent post. It is to be seen how Yediyurappa who has been snubbed by the party reacts.
