Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister of Karnataka and state BJP president, B S Yeddyurappa, has been chosen the leader of the opposition in the state assembly.
This decision was taken by the BJP leaders at the party meeting held at a private hotel here under Yeddyurappa's authority on Thursday May 24. At the session being hung on Friday, his name would be prescribed to the said post.
In the meantime, probably, Karkala MLA, Sunil Kumar, will be made Chief whip of the opposition in the assembly. Whip has been issued to all the BJP MLAs, teaching them to vote against the trust vote when Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, moves the same in the assembly.
At the said meeting, the party pooled together opinions from the candidates about the reasons which in their opinion contributed to the inability of the party to muster majority in the assembly election.
