Dissent in BSY’s KJP over candidate selection



Zeenews Bureau

Bangalore: Not only the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress, but the Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) led BS Yeddyurappa too is facing problems over the selection of the candidates for the upcoming Assembly elections.

Reports, Friday, suggested that the KJP leaders from Dakshina Kannada district are upset with district-in charge V Dhananjay Kumar, who has reportedly sent a list of his own candidates to the party high command in view of the polls.

Block unit presidents, led by KJP district unit chief Ravindra Shetty, have tried to meet party chief BS Yeddyurappa and apprise him of the developments, but were not successful in getting an appointment with him.

Meanwhile, various local KJP leaders have threatened to tender their resignation if the current list is not withdrawn.
