Bengaluru: Kolada Mutt Seer Dr Shantaveera Swamiji on Wednesday asserted that ” If it becomes inevitable for BJP to replace Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, it should be a Veerashaiva- Lingayat again.”
The seer who spoke in the backdrop of speculations over the change of chief minister, said ” the successor to Yediyurappa
should be a Veerashaiva-Lingayat leader. Or else it will prove costly for BJP.”
The seer reminded that if the BJP formed its first ever government in south India in Karnataka, the credit should go to Yediyurappa. However, Yediyurappa himself has said he will have to abide by the diktat of the high command.
The Veerashaiva- Lingayats are neither for nor against any individual in particular. But, the next CM should be from the community, the seer said.
