Bengaluru: Adding to the suspense among public and political circles in Karnataka as the state awaits the ruling BJP to announce the next Chief Minister, Shivamogga MP B Y Raghavendra said the selection will be a “surprise choice.”
“It (next Karnataka CM) will be a surprise choice like those made by the party in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. For instance, even during the latest Union cabinet reshuffle, neither you (media) nor us (politicians) could predict what was to happen,” Raghavendra, who is also the son of outgoing CM Yediyurappa said at Bengaluru airport on Tuesday.
Before Basavaraj Bommai said This process will be completed in the next three to four days. There won’t be much gap from now,’ he said. However, when asked about any possible decision that has been made by the party’s High Command, Bommai said, ‘The state leaders are yet to have exact information on who would be the next CM. Ours is a national party and we have a set system in place where decision making is done at different levels,’ he added.
