Sadananda Gowda with Jagadish Shettar
Bangalore, Jul 10: Karnataka watched a high political drama on Tuesday, Jul 10.  However, the state finally got to know the name of its new Chief Minister. The outgoing CM Sadananda Gowda elected Jagadish Shettar as his successor. Shettar will swear in as the new CM at 11 am on Wednesday.

After all hallabulloo, it is quite clear that ever smiling Gowda played the role of a real shocker to his predecessor BS Yeddyurappa who earlier had given several sleepless nights to the former.

BSY compelled BJP high command to replace Gowda with his loyalist Jagadish Shettar. Initially there was no revolt from Gowda's part but on Tuesday he came up with a shocking news for Yeddyurappa camp and BJP high command as well.

Gowda, who ruled the reign for 11 months, has demanded that he be made the Karnataka BJP Chief. The second demand he put forth to the BJP High Command is that the current BJP Party President KS Eshwarappa or R Ashoka be made the Deputy Chief Minister of the state and the third condition is that social justice be done and equal ministerial berths to their camp be given.

Conflicting with Gowda's suggestions, Yeddyurappa proposed three names for the post to the BJP High Command that includes- Shobha Karandlaje, Revu Naik Belmagi and Raju Gowda.

However, BJP high command yet to decide about the post of deputy chief minister of Karnataka, though it was quite clear that a resolution acceptable to all sides had been found. Gowda, who initially threatened to boycott the BJP legislative meeting, turned up to the venue almost after six hours of the scheduled time.
