Central leaders asked me to continue as Karnataka CM: BS Yediyurappa | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The central leaders have asked me to continue as chief minister and strengthen the party, Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa said amid speculation about possible changes in the leadership and cabinet.
“There is no question of leadership change in the state,” he said.
Earlier today, Yediyurappa dismissed rumours of him being replaced as the chief minister and said the BJP leadership has asked him to ensure the development of the party and that it wins all upcoming elections.
“Yesterday I met the PM, we discussed the development of the state and I will come back again in August. There is no value of such news,” Yediyurappa said.
Yediyurappa met BJP chief J P Nadda, and Union ministers and senior party leaders Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh today, a day after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
After a 20-minute meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Yediyurappa said reporters that they only discussed pending works in the state, including the Mekedatu dam project over the Cauvery river.
“I requested the Prime Minister to facilitate early implementation of some projects and he agreed,” the Karnataka chief minister said.
