Even after two days of Congress-JD(S) government led by HD Kumaraswamy lost trust vote in the Karnataka state assembly, the BJP seems to be uncertain to stake claim for formation of its government. Though initially it was jubiliant to form the government within 24 hours, now is waiting for high command’s direction.
As the fate of resigned MLAs is yet to be decided and technically presently the house strength is 224, of which BJP numbers are only 105, the party leadership is waiting to avoid any possible embarrassment after forming government in hurry.
Meanwhile, Karnataka BJP delegation comprising of Jagadish Shettar, Basavraj Bommai, Arvind Limbavali and other leaders reached Delhi today. The delegation will meet Home Minister and BJP chief Amit Shah and party working President JP Nadda later in the day and is expected to discuss the future course of action to form the government in Karnataka.
“Regarding the political scenario, what is happening and everything, we want to discuss with our national president Amit Shah Ji. For that we came here,” BJP leader Jagadish Shettar said.
“You know the situation of Karnataka. The new government has to come. The earlier government has lost the majority and they have given the resignation. We are meeting the BJP leaders to take the readers. We will take their advice on how to go further. Regarding that, our delegation is here,” another BJP leader Arvind Limbavali said.
Asked if the BJP is waiting because no decision has been taken on the resignation of rebel MLAs, he said, “That is not the issue. Maybe, one of the issues. We need to take the guidance of the central party. We will take the guidance of all the senior leaders.”
