Vijayendra not to contest from Varuna, appointed state Yuva Morcha general secretary

By Deepika

The Karnataka BJP has appointed party state chief BS Yeddyurappa's son BY Vijayendra as the Yuva Morcha state general secretary. Announcing the decision, the party twitter handle said that Vijayendra would "be campaigning extensively for candidates in the Old Mysuru region".


The tweet reads: "Congratulations to Shri BY Vijayendra on his appointment as State General Secretary, Yuva Morcha. His addition will greatly boost the party cadre and strengthen our organisation in the Old Mysuru region. He will be campaigning extensively for candidates in the Old Mysuru region."

The move indicates that Vijayendra will not be contesting the assembly polls this time around.

There was a huge protest in Mysore on Monday after state president and chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa announced that his son Vijayendra will not be contesting from the Varuna constituency.

Vijayendra supporters reportedly threw chairs at the convention on Monday, reminding people of what was witnessed across Congress district offices soon after the latter released its first list of candidates.

Yeddyurappa's son was expected to go against Siddaramaiah's son Yathindra for the Varuna constituency in a contest between the offspring of Karnataka's two most popular leaders.
