    BSY has finally resigned from primary membership of BJP.

    He has launched new political front in the name of 'Karnataka Janata Party'

    What will be implications for BJP in state now ?

    How BJP will manage the fallout ?

    Can KJP form government in Karnataka in coming elections ?

    Will BSY be able to keep all his caste vote bank behind him or it will split up?

    I presume RSS's base would stay with BJP, the question is whether that's big enough to keep BJP relevant in the coming elections.

    The question is, how much work has BSY done during his term for his core constituency.

    One must appreciate that BJP didn't budge to the demands of BSY. Let's see how well he will do in the coming elections with corruption cases against him.

    The fact that Yeddi went out by resigning and not due to his party throwing him out after all his tantrums does not make BJP look any good!

    Yeddyurappa does not seem to have many takers going by the size of the crowd with his march shown on local channels in Bengaluru. Just have to wait and see what happens,he will definitely play a spoiler by splitting the vote - could hurt all the parties including Congress, BJP or JD(S). BJP did not bow to his demands which is good.

    This will not do any good for BJP in Karnataka, they want to have firm foothold in South but now they will loose their only hope.

    Ananth Kumar is not a mass leader like Yeddyurappa, OTOH there is no mass leader like Yeddyurappa in Karnataka BJP. Yeddyurappa feels short changed by BJP which is justified to some extent I feel for reasons I would not like to elaborate. In the Mining scam in Karnataka 2 Congress CMs, 1 JDS CM and Yeddy were named but only Yeddy was investigated and jailed. Illegal mining in Karnataka was started by Congress party in Karnataka with co-operation with their peers in Andhra notably YSR.

    Yeddy might end up like Kalyan Singh or Uma Bharati perhaps but he is a great fighter and politician with lot of spunk and energy and he might end up forming a regional party that hurts both BJP and Congress in the long run.

    @parijataka why was Ananth Kumar allowed to play backroom politics against Yeddy by RSS?.

    Regardless of back room politics by Ananth Kumar, it was Yeddyurappa who dug his own grave. It is not Ananth Kumar who brought about the downfall of Yeddy but his own over confidence. Any BJP CM they have to be absolutely spot free like NaMo or Parrikar etc else Congress will screw the life out of them. I think you are reading too much into conspiracy into Yeddy's downfall.

    Back room politics is there in Congress also which is far worse - SM Krishna a popular CM was not allowed back into the state during last Assembly elections by other Congress CM aspirants and the party paid the price.

    After the mega-rally in Haveri on Sunday silenced all critics about former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa’s mass appeal, the BJP national President Nitin Gadkari took party Karnataka in-charge Dharmendra Prad-h-an to task for his partisan handling of Karn-ataka affairs, that set the stage for Yeddyu-rappa’s exit from the party and the launch of a party that is set to challenge the saffronists in their own backyard.

    During a meeting with party state leaders at Delhi, party National Pres-ident Nitin Gadkari and senior leader Arun Jaitly expressed their displeasure over Mr Pradhan, state party chief K.S. Eshwarappa as well as Santhosh, party organising secretary misleading the central leaders and precipitating the Karnataka crisis.

    Delhi refused to take action against BSY’s supporters, ending any move to issue a showcause notice or suspend any more supporters, for now.

    Highly placed sources told DC that party central leaders felt Mr Pradhan painted “the wrong picture” to the Central leaders about the number game, by saying that BSY’s claim of support from 50 MLAs was false and that in reality, he only had the backing of a dozen MLAs.

    The Lingayat leader “leaving the party would have no impact on the party,” Pradhan repor-tedly told Delhi, making them turn a deaf ear to BSY’s pleas to make him state party chief.
