Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister DV
Sadananda Gowda, a Lok Sabha member from the state, would seek
to become a Legislative Council member.

BJP MLC N Shankrappa would resign this week to pave the
way for Gowda`s election to the upper house.

The decision was taken at a meeting attended by Gowda,
BJP state unit President KS Eshwarappa, former Chief Minister
BS Yeddyurappa and senior RSS functionaries, party sources
said.

Gowda succeeded Yeddyurappa and will have to become a
member of either house of the state legislature within six
months of assuming charge as Chief Minister.

Shankrappa, elected from the Legislative Assembly, had a
tenure till June 30, 2014. Given the ruling BJP`s majority in
the Lower House, Gowda would have a smooth sailing.

The meeting also decided to defer the third round of
Cabinet expansion for some time, the sources said.
