Days after Karnataka former Chief Minister BS Yeddiyurappa's son BY Vijayendra was appointed as the state BJP unit's chief, BJP MP Ramesh Jagajinagi stoked controversy by saying that the the High Command named Vijayendra as party president, not the party leaders in state. While addressing the media in Vijayapura, Ramesh Jagajinagi said, "If you're a Dalit, you won't get an opportunity to grow within the BJP." He criticised the party high command for appointing BY Vijayendra as the state president because he is BS Yediyurappa's son.
