It was good of BJP to getr rid of Yeddy. It should get rid of Gadkari too. It will come to power in due course.

It depends. Regional leaders have never done well on their own specially in Karnataka. Remember the case of Devraj Urs. Inspite of the massive grassroots support he had, after he broke off from Indira Gandhi he came a cropper. To cite another example, Uma Bharti was instrumental in reversing the fortunes in MP but once she quit and went on her own, she was in the wilderness. Whatever may be the analysis of what will happen, the real test would be the coming elections. Already there are three major parties in the fray which means, any of the major parties getting a decent share of vote would be able to romp home, like it happened in UP where SP has just thirty three percent votes and yet got a very decent majority.

Another factor is that, like in many other States Karnataka a cauldron of religious and caste politics. A lot will depend up on how these loyalties play up and where the votes go. BSY has to get atleast a decent no. of seats to be a good bargainer for whichever party he ne ...more

Looks difficult. Yeddy may not gain much but he can play a spoiler role to BJP in Karnataka.

Yes very much. yeddy is a lingayat leader and lingayats are 14% in karnataka. and not all lingayats will vote for him. but he can be a spoilsport for bjp and congress gets a better chance at next elections
