Hubballi: The political circles are abuzz after the news making the rounds that Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa will step down from his post. And discussions are going on among the political pundits about who will be the next Chief Minister of the state. Union Minister Pralhad Joshi’s name has been doing the rounds for quite some time now for the post. On Saturday night, Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai met Joshi at his residence and that raised curiosity.
The reporters asked Bommai why he met him at this hour?. He said there were some issues related to his Shiggaon constituency and he had not met him for the last three and half months. It was a courtesy call and he also said they ‘did not discuss politics.’
A sudden meeting of these two leaders has given wings to the speculation.
