BJP will provide stable government in Karnataka: J P Nadda
By India Today 26-Jul-2019
"They (Congress-JD-S) fell under their own weight due to internal reasons...The BJP is synonymous with stability. Wherever we go, we bring stability," J P Nadda told reporters at his maiden press conference where he also shared the Narendra Modi government's achievements in its first 50 days.
Asked about the fact that BJP leader B S Yediyurappa, who took oath as chief minister, is over the 75-year age bar the party has stipulated for its leaders holding any government position, he played it down.
Yediyurappa was the leader of the BJP legislature party in the state and it was natural for him to be the party's choice for the chief minister's post, he said.
"It depends," he said when quizzed about the party's age-bar and then added, "you see, first of all, he is a leader, he is an elected leader of the legislature party. Accordingly, he is taking an oath. It is a continuous process and the party takes note of ongoing developments from time to time."
As the leader of the opposition he is alright and the day he takes oath the question is asked about his age, he said, adding that it does not work like that.
The BJP under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its president Amit Shah has introduced the 75 years limit for ministers in the party-run governments as well as for its candidates in the recent Lok Sabha election to ease out many veterans, including L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Sumitra Mahajan among others.
