Cabinet Expansion: Upset BJP MLAs to meet Amit Shah to pour their woes

Bengaluru: Several disgruntled BJP legislators, who were not included in the recent Cabinet expansion, are expected to meet Union Minister Amit Shah and put forth their grievance during his visit to the State on January 16 and 17.

Shah is scheduled to visit Karnataka to participate in various programmes in Shivamogga, Belagavi, Bagalkot and Bengaluru. Disgruntled BJP MLAs are expected to meet him during his stay in Belagavi.

“Apart from those publicly airing criticism against Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, there are also those who have decided to approach the former BJP Chief and express their concerns,” party sources added.

Apart from complaints on Cabinet expansion, legislators are expected to complain to Shah alleged interference of State party Vice President and Yediyurappa’s second son BY Vijayendra in government affairs.

Sources said despite the complaints, a quick redressal was difficult as the new list of ministers was approved by the high command before ministers were sworn in.

Shah will arrive in Bengaluru on January 16 and fly to Shivamogga to participate in various programmes, including the inauguration of the Rapid Action Force unit in Bhadravathi. He will return to Bengaluru the same evening and participate in an event at Vidhana Soudha, the State Secretariat.

On Sunday, he will take part in an event of Nirani Group in Bagalkot, inaugurate a high-tech simulation training centre at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and will participate in a public programme at the venue.

He is scheduled to visit the residence of late Union Minister Suresh Angadi and hold an hour-long meeting with party leaders before departing to Delhi.
