BS Yediyurappa declines Cabinet rank status, asks Basavaraj Bommai to withdraw order

The newly-appointed Karnataka CM on Saturday issued an order stating that Yediyurappa will continue to receive government facilities on par with cabinet-rank ministers

Bengaluru: Former Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa Sunday urged Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai to withdraw his order to give him cabinet rank status.

“I request you to provide me only those facilities which are given to an immediate former chief minister and withdraw the order giving me a cabinet rank,” Yediyurappa said in his letter to Bommai, which was made available to the media.

Bommai on Saturday issued an order stating that BS Yediyurappa will continue to receive government facilities on par with cabinet-rank ministers.

The order stated that he would remain the beneficiary of cabinet-rank facilities such as same salary, government vehicle, official accommodation, until Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is in office.

Yediyurappa had resigned on 26 July, which coincided with the completion of his two years’ term in the office.

A day after his resignation, Yediyurappa had proposed Bommai’s name as the leader at the BJP legislature party meet and was accordingly accepted by all. On 28 July, Bommai took oath as the new Chief Minister.
