Amit Shah chairs BJP core panel meeting in Bangalore

BANGALORE: Veteran BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah today, March 27, chaired a meeting with the state BJP core committee and election management panel in Bangalore.

The meeting was attended by BJP National Organizing General Secretary BL Santhosh, co-in-charges Man Sukh Mandaviya, Annamalai, CM Basavaraj Bommai, ex-CM BS Yediyurappa, Union Minister Prahlad Joshi, State President Naleen Kumar Kateel, Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje, as well as other members of the core committee and election management committee.

Amit Shah praised Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, and BS Yediyurappa, his immediate predecessor and a longtime member of the BJP, earlier on Sunday, saying that both had offered "excellent administration" throughout their respective terms.

Shah asked the people to elect the BJP with a full majority in the next Assembly elections scheduled this year, citing the development work carried out by the party's government under both chief ministers.

"In the past four years, the Prime Minister has given Karnataka's development a boost with a spirit of team India, first under Yediyurappa and now under Basavaraj Bommai's leadership. I commend Yediyurappa for the way he oversaw the COVID preparedness during his term. I used to communicate via video conference with the chief ministers of different states. It was important to protect Bangalore from COVID. Nonetheless, Yediyurappa deserves praise for the manner he handled the predicament. Like Yediyurappa, Bommai continued to promote good governance after his arrival "Home Minister for the Union remarked.

He asserted that the BJP government will advance the state throughout the nation and the world. "I want to inform the Karnataka people that despite receiving 104 seats in the most recent elections, we fell short of the required majority, resulting in a wasted one and a half years. I implore you to secure a resounding majority for the BJP government. I can tell you that Karnataka would advance under the double-engine government not just in India but also globally "he said.

Shah also applauded the Karnataka government's decision to allocate the 4% OBC allocation for Muslims among the majority Veerashaiva-Lingayat and Vokkaliga communities, saying that the move was in line with the Constitution, whereas the previous policy (reservation based on religion) was not.

In a jab at the Congress, the Shah said that Karnataka did not require a party whose leaders engaged in disputes over the position of chief minister. "Parties that disagree on who should be chief minister are not what Karnataka needs. It requires a group of nationalists like the BJP, which is led by Prime Minister Modi. The Karnataka Legislative Assembly is celebrating a momentous day today. The statues of Lord Basavanna ji and Kempegowda ji, who introduced India to the rest of the world, were unveiled here today. The representatives attending the assembly will receive a message from these sculptures about democracy, social fairness, and good governance " he said.
