BJP will not allow midterm polls in State: Yeddyurappa
By The Hindu 08-Jun-2019
The former Chief Minister and BJP State president B.S. Yeddyurappa has categorically denied any possibility of midterm elections in Karnataka and said that his party will not allow it to happen. He was responding to a widely shared video that showed Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy’s son, K. Nikhil, giving a call to Janata Dal (Secular) workers to get ready to face another election.
While speaking to reporters at Hubballi Airport on Friday en route to Badami in Bagalkot district for a tour of drought-affected villages, Mr. Yeddyurappa categorically stated that there was no question of going for an election to seek a fresh mandate. “Mr. Kumaraswamy’s son may have issued a statement calling for his partymen to prepare to face an election again. But I will say there will not be any election for any reason and we will not allow it,” he said.
Speaking on the same issue at Mushtigeri village in Badami taluk, he said, “The man who has lost the Lok Sabha election from Mandya [Mr. Nikhil] has no moral right to talk on midterm polls.”
Mr. Yeddyurappa took a dig at the coalition partners in the State and said, “They [coalition partners] should run the government if they can and if they are unable to do so, let them leave it to us. We have 105 legislators and we will run the government. There is no question of going for an election again. There are four more years before we can seek a fresh mandate from people.” In the same breath, however, he added that none in the State believed that the coalition government would last long.
