BJP looking to make big changes in Karnataka after big loss

After a humiliating defeat in Bang, the BJP is back on the drawing board and is in the process of reorganizing its internal organization. According to sources, the party is likely to replace head of state and is also recalculating its options for opposition leader because of concerns about Basavaraj Bommai’s abilities and appeal. appearing in the party.

The BJP lost to the National Assembly in the Karnataka Parliament elections on May 13 as the party was able to win only 66 of the 224 constituencies of the assembly. While the high opposition rate was the main reason for the failure, Bommai’s lack of attractiveness to retain the Lingayat voter base, BL Santosh’s influence in ticket distribution strategy and the party’s inability to research basic fact, are the top reasons listed.

According to sources, after the defeat, the party will replace BJP Director Karnataka Nalin Kumar Kateel. In August 2019, Kateel, a three-time representative of Lok Sabha from Dakshina Kannada, was appointed State Unit President for a three-year term. His term was extended after the elections. Recently, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi hinted the same and said that national leaders will make a decision on this post.

Discussions are underway

The sources also noted that intense discussions were underway internally about who should be the leader of the opposition with a large majority opposed to Basvaraj Bommai being nominated there. Party leaders required a hardline Hindutva like Basavaraj Yatnal or a Lingayat leader like BY Vijayendra, son of Yediyurappa to be selected for the position.

Bombai would, perhaps, be compensated by party leaders at the Central Committee by conferring a position in the central cabinet. However, the former minister does not want to shift the focus of this career, people familiar with the development said. Another leader being pacified by the center is V Somanna, who lost both seats – Chamrajnagara and Varuna – he ran for office after giving up his seat to Govindraj Nagar, where he was firmly in control. According to sources, he will be given a seat on the legislative assembly.

Political analyst Sandeep Shastri, said, “There has to be a loser in the face of defeat, and the former CM and the Führer are the easiest targets. The impact of these changes will depend on the performance of the new leaders taking up the position.”

He added that the party, for both positions could see the face of Lingayat or a leader of a backward caste from the coastal regions. These positions are likely to be filled by leaders with no connections to the government, which will ensure that attacks on the ruling party are less harsh and more problematic. more discussion. Shastri said choosing to take the hard line of promoting Hindutva may also not be very effective because so far, that push has not worked in the State.
