No question of midterm elections, says BJP’s ex-CM Yeddyurappa | india news


The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party will not press for fresh state elections in Karnataka, its leader BS Yeddyurappa said on Monday as the ruling coalition between Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) — JD(S) — used to be rocked by fresh defections that threatened to cause it into a minority in the meeting.

“I categorically state that there will be no elections as four years of tenure of this meeting still exists. Elections will be burden on state exchequer,” he said in an interview to Hindustan Times.

The remarks mark a change in stand from May, shortly after his party won 25 of the 28 Lok Sabha seats in the state.

Yeddyurappa added that his party had no role in the developments.
