BJP cancels legislative party meeting in Bengaluru
Preferring a gentle pace to prevent any last-minute hiccup to form a government in Karnataka, the BJP legislative party meeting, which was scheduled at 11 am in Bengaluru on Wednesday, was cancelled as the party chose to tread cautiously.
According to News18, senior BJP leaders at the central level said that they were in no hurry and have a number of things to finish before forming the government. “BS Yeddyurappa is the clear choice for being elected as the next chief minister of Karnataka,” it said quoting a BJP source.
India Today source told that the BJP legislature party was expected to meet on Wednesday to select state president BS Yeddyurappa as the next chief minister. It is expected that he is to be elected without any hurdles. He may take oath as CM on Thursday, or Friday, and will expand his ministry after winning the floor test.
