DVS bats for Yeddyurappa for BJP state president post

Union Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda on Friday batted for former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa for the post of BJP state president.

“Yeddyurappa is a great leader and had worked hard to bring the BJP to the power in the State. He deserves to be the state president of the party. However, the party high command takes the final decision on this,” he said.

Gowda was speaking to media after taking part in a function, “Good Governance Day,” organised to mark the birthday celebrations of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee here on Friday.

Gowda, a former BJP state president, said that a final decision on choosing the person for the post of the state president will be taken by the party high command. The term of the incumbent Pralhad Joshi will soon get over and a new state president has to be elected.

Gowda said the Congress was sending its ministers to force voters in the upcoming elections to the Legislative Council from the local bodies constituencies to swear in the name of God to vote for their candidates.

“This is happening not only in Bengaluru, but elsewhere too. The ministers have been assigned to hold such sessions across the State. The results, however, will be no different from that of the last Lok Sabha elections,” Gowda added.
