Bangalore. Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has reacted to the speculations going on in Karnataka politics. He has made it clear that he will remain the Chief Minister in the state for the next two years. He has said – Our state in-charge Arun Singh himself has said that Yeddyurappa is the Chief Minister for the next two years. I will try to do my best for the next two years. Now there is no need to speculate. I promise that I will serve the state as Chief Minister for two years.
He said- My focus is only on the service of the people of the state. I will work hard and try to maintain the trust that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have shown in me.
Yeddyurappa had also said a few days ago that he would continue at the top post as long as the BJP high command has faith in him. The chief minister had said, he does not agree that there is no alternative leader to replace him in the state BJP, so the day the order comes from the party’s central leadership, he will step down.
‘As long as the Delhi high command has faith in me, I will remain the chief minister’When Yediyurappa was asked about the change of leadership in the state, he said, “… As long as the Delhi high command has faith in me, I will remain the chief minister. The day they say they don’t want me, I will resign and I will work day and night for the development of the state. I am not under any illusion. They (high command) have given me an opportunity, I am trying to take advantage of this opportunity by going ahead with my strength. Leave the rest to the high command. Have given.’
