Bengaluru:There is groupism in the BJP, which is the most indisciplined party, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said here on Monday, replying to a query on the saffron party’s delay in electing LoP in the state assembly.
“It clearly shows there is groupism in the party. The BJP calls itself a disciplined party, but it is the most indisciplined political party,” he told reporters at Vidhana Soudha.
The BJP is yet to elect the LoP in the assembly, even as the budget session of the state legislature kicked off Monday.
Meanwhile, the BJP has appointed Vijay Tawade and Mansukh Mandaviya as central observers to elect the LoP. This was revealed by former chief minister BS Yediyurappa late Sunday night in New Delhi.
Yediyurappa met National BJP President JP Nadda and Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi and discussed the prevailing political situation in Karnataka, including the election of LoP and the Karnataka BJP President’s post.
In the May 10 assembly election, the BJP was routed by the Congress, as they won just 66 seats to the ruling party’s 135 seats. JDS won 19 seats.
