Amit Shah’s Karnataka visit prolongs suspense over cab expansion

The CM left for Davos on Sunday on a six-day trip to attend the world economic summit amid an uneasy lull. While Yediyurappa has said he will expand his ministry after his return, it has meant little by way of a message. Sections of BJP leaders are intrigued as to why the party leadership is not letting the CM go ahead with the much delayed expansion .

  • Yediyurappa pointed out that he has come to power because of the Congress-JD(S) legislators who rebelled against the then coalition government.

    Days after indicating thathe may not travel to Davos to attend the World Economic Forum later this month, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Monday said he will be attending the global meet, and that the expansion of his ministry will take place before his foreign tour.

    With Yediyurappa making it clear that 11 of the disqualified JDS-Congress MLAs who got re-elected in the December 5 bypolls on BJP tickets will be made ministers, lobbying has been on within the party for the remaining ministerial berths. Currently there are 18 ministers, including the Chief Minister, in the cabinet that has a sanctioned strength is 34.

    Karnataka Chief Minister’s challenge is to induct all the 'disqualified MLAs' into his Cabinet; may skip WEF meet at Davos.

    The MLAs attempted to move the apex court praying for postponement of the December 5 byelection to 15 Assembly seats.

    The court upheld the Speaker's disqualification, but clarified that it will be till their re-election and not till the end of the term of the House as he had ruled. If elected in bypolls, these disqualified Karnataka MLAs can become ministers or hold public office. "We do not appreciate the manner in which the petitioners came to the court," the judge remarked.

    Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, state BJP chief Nalin Kumar Kateel and National General Secretary in charge of Karnataka, P Muralidhar Rao were among those who welcomed them into the party fold. BJP that aims to win a majority of the 15 constituencies where bypolls will be held is likely to field most of them as the party candidates.

    Speaking to reporters in Delhi, he said, they will be joining the party tomorrow at 10.30 a.m in Bengaluru in the presence of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and BJP state President Nalin Kumar Kateel. Some disqualified MLAs along with Ashwathnarayan met B L Santosh, BJP National General Secretary, in New Delhi hours after the verdict.

    The Congress is expecting a miracle in that BJP regime is reduced to a minority. In such a scenario, the party hopes to do an encore of Maharashtra. Of course, by tying up again with JD(S).
