Bickering in Karnataka BJP: JD(S) demands dismissal of Yediyurappa Govt

Bengaluru: With alleged bickering coming to the fore in the ruling BJP in Karnataka, the JD(S) on Thursday demanded the dismissal of the B S Yediyurappa government, as the “lack of leadership is leading to anarchy”.

As the BJP national general secretary and Karnataka in charge Arun Singh continued his consultations with his party leaders in the backdrop of speculation in some quarters over leadership change, former Chief Ministers Siddaramaiah and H D Kumaraswamy sought to take a dig at the J P Nadda-led party.

The JD(S) second-in-command Kumaraswamy said, “The media reports say that the search for a leader to replace the existing one (Yediyurappa) has begun, but no suitable person is available”.

“What is the use of a government which does not have leadership…Dissolve it first,” Kumaraswamy tweeted.

He likened the ”leaderless government” to a ship without a sailor and a house without an owner, which can prove fatal.

Kumaraswamy claimed that the ruling party MLAs themselves are saying that the existing leadership was not up to expectations and have been demanding his replacement.

“Hence, this government is dangerous for people,” Kumaraswamy said.

“Why not dissolve the BJP government and stay away from power when there is no leadership?”.

He slammed the BJP for “lacking sensibility” for raising the issue of leadership change at a time when the state was battered by COVID-19 and people were in distress due to lockdown.
