In all probability, most of the MLAs who had won in the bypolls would be accommodated to give stability to the Government. Yediyurappa now has a comfortable majority in the assembly and is in a position to take decisions independently. He has also proved his ability by winning 13 of the 15 seats in the bypolls. Now, it has the necessary elbow space to manoeuvre in the state government.
Yediyurappa is the only BJP chief minister in India, who has crossed 75 years of age. The party leadership, which has been retiring all the above â€“ 75 years leaders, has given an exception to Yediyurappa. He has proved that he is indispensable for the party in Karnataka.
