Bangalore, June 5: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to have been ready with two major surprises in store. The party may come up with two surprises -- one expected and another unexpected during its party workers' convention in Panaji, Goa on Sunday, June 9.
One mysterious poster raised several questions among citizens in Bangalore. The poster, featuring Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, BJP leader LK Advani, BJP MP Ananth Kumar, and for BJP MLA Hemachandra Sagar's images, asks few questions to all citizens. The questions are -- Will Goa Decide? Who is the next PM? Who is the next MP?
The poster shocked all after carrying former Karnataka CM BS Yeddyurappa's image on it. People were surprised to see the poster. However, it is not yet cleared that which party or organisation has put up the banner. The last question of the banner indeed created confusions among Bangaloreans.
Citing the banner, many started speculating that Yeddyurappa may return to BJP and the decision might be announced at the Goa meet. The party is also likely to declare it Prime Minister (PM) candidate for upcoming Lok Sabha elections at the same meet. It is believed that Modi is one of the strongest nominees for the post.
Yeddyurappa, who left BJP over several differences with the party leaders, was quoted as saying, "I hope BJP leaders don't come to me and request me to come back because I am not going back. BJP is no longer a big party in Karnataka."
BJP faced a tremendous defeat in Karnataka in the recently concluded assembly elections. Experts believe that Yeddyurappa had played the role of a party popper for BJP.
BJP also had claimed that the party did not have any plan to ask Yeddyurappa to rejoin the party. But many believe that Modi factor may influence the Lingayat leader who earlier had endorsed the Gujarat CM for PM candidate.
Yeddyurappa reportedly had claimed that Modi was his first choice for PM. Now, with the latest banners in all over the city, many started speculating that BJP may announce some shocking decisions at the Goa meet.
