Chamarajanagara: Minister V. Somanna, who was upset with BJP Leaders for the past few days, looks like has calmed down to some extent as Former Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa and he are all set to share dais at Male Mahadeshwara Hill. BSY’s name has appeared in the invitation card of the Male Mahadeshwara idol installation ceremony and there are rumours that this programme will be a platform for BSY and Somanna erase rift.

According to the etiquette, only the names of the local people’s representatives and those in power should be put in the Government programme. But, B.S. Yeddyurappa’s name has appeared in the invitation card and it is said that the BJP Leaders have prepared this stage at the MM Hill for the two leaders to recite the mantra of unity.

On March 1, BJP National President J. P. Nadda came to the State to launch the Vijay Sankalpa Yatra which started at Male Mahadeshwara Hill in Chamarajanagara. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, BJP State President Nalin Kumar Kateel, Former Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa also participated in this programme. But Somanna, who is the In-Charge Minister of Chaman agara District, was absent from the start of Vijay Sankalpa Yatra. Even then, the opposition parties had issued statement that there is difference of opinion in the BJP.

It was said that Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai did not give the grant, and Minister Somanna was keeping distance from his party due to various reasons. Later, the opposition leaders used this issue as a dice and said that Minister Somanna will leave the BJP. There were also rumours in the political circle that he would leave the BJP and join the Congress. BJP leaders had clarified that Minister Somanna will not leave the party. In the midst of this, BSY had told that some sitting MLAs might miss out on the ticket in the next Assembly election.

Besides, the Assembly election is approaching, and Minister Somanna has asked the BJP leaders to give a ticket to his son this time. But there were rumours in the political circle that Somanna’s son would join the Congress as it was doubtful that he would get a ticket from the BJP this time.
There is also a rumour that the party will give a ticket to Vijayendra, the son of BSY, who is the BJP State Vice-President.

“So if the rule of no ticket for politician’s children applies to me, it should apply to others as well. BSY and Vijayendra had expressed their displeasure towards the children of other politicians by implying that if they don’t get tickets, we don’t either. After that Minister Somanna did not participate in any of the party programmes even though Vijay Sankalpa Yatra was held all over the State even though it was held in his District. On Wednesday March 15, Somanna, who expressed his displeasure against BSY for the first time, travelled to Delhi and directly met the leaders of the High Command. After that Somanna held a press conference on Thursday March 16 and said that the leaders of the High Command cleared our confusion. “BSY Yeddyurappa is an unquestionable leader, I also grew up in Yediyurappa’s circle. He also said Yediyurappa is like his father. The strong leaders of the Lingayat community have come forward from MM Hill to chant the mantra of unity between Minister Somanna and BSY who have cleared the confusion. This programme which will be held on the threshold of elections will be a plus for the BJP.
