Bengaluru, July 27: The BJP legislature party in Karnataka will meet this evening to elect the successor for BS Yediyurappa, who resigned yesterday.
The BJP has deputed two union ministers – Dharmendra Pradhan and G Kishan Reddy – as central observers for the meeting scheduled at around 7 pm.
However, the new Chief Minister’s name will be announced tomorrow, said a party leader close to the power corridor.
G Kishan Reddy and Dharmendra Pradhan have already arrived in Bengaluru.
Everybody is an aspirant, everybody wants to be CM. But there is only one CM. That is why we’ll follow party high command’s decision, Karnataka Minister R Ashoka said replying to media questions on probable names for the race.
