Karnataka CM Yeddyurappa meets PM Modi amid speculation of leadership change, refutes media report

The chief minister had communicated his willingness to step down to the PM last week through an emissary, according to top sources

Agartala: Huge speculation of Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa stepping down from the post has started soon after his meeting with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.

Mohua Chatterjee, Senior journalist took to social media and wrote, “Yeddyurappa met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday evening and offered to step down from his post on grounds of “ill health” it is learnt. This comes weeks after BJP restored faith in the party’s top Lingayat leader with a section of BJP demanding his resignation.

She also wrote that the chief minister had communicated his willingness to step down to the PM last week through an emissary, according to top sources, but he wanted to express himself directly to the PM, HM Amit Shah and BJP chief J P Nadda.

“It is for the central leadership to take a call on when the CM’s resignation should be accepted. It is likely that BSY will step down by July 26,” Chatterjee said.

The 78-year-old Karnataka CM, intends to step down now as “there will be no pressure on the government” since no polls are coming up in the state soon, say sources. As he turns 80 in two years, the BJP leadership wants to nurture the next in line leader in the state, say sources.

It is also learnt that BSY has expressed his wishes to the leadership to help BJP grow to form its full majority government in the state, where it has had to depend on allies. Incidentally, the Lingayat leader continues to be BJP’s best bet in the southern state

“That is why, BJP agreed to continue with him as CM, when it toppled the Congress-led coalition government to return to office in 2018, even at a time when the Modi-Amit Shah leadership had taken a strong stand on disallowing leaders beyond 75 years of age to continue in any post.” Chatterjee added.

However, Yeddyurappa refuted to the media reports and said there is no truth in talks of my resignation.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
