BENGALURU: The BJP, which was expected to hold its legislature party meeting today evening to pick the leader of the opposition, has put off the meeting to 9 am on Tuesday.

The meeting will be held at the party office in Malleswaram to pick the leader of the opposition in the Assembly and Council. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya and BJP national general secretary Vinod Tawde have been named as central observers for the election.

Meanwhile, the BJP members participated in the address by Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot to the joint session of the legislature which began today.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah termed the BJP as the ‘most indisciplined political party’.

Reacting to the BJP not picking a leader of the opposition so far, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said, “That shows there is factionalim in the party. They claim to a disciplined party, but it is the most indisciplined political party”. On the BJP’s plan to stage a protest against the government over the implementation of the Congress guarantees, the CM merely said, “Let them stage a protest”.
