Bokanakere Yeddyurappa Vijayendra (BY Vijayendra), is the Vice president of BJP Karnataka and is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Karnataka BJP President Nalin Kumar Kateel on Friday appointed Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s son BY Vijayendra, among 10 others, as Vice Presidents for the party’s state unit. For Mr. Vijayendra, who is seen as the successor to Mr. Yediyurappa, this is a promotion within the party. He was so far serving as Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) general secretary.
Mr. Vijayendra is said to have increased his stakes within the party after he, along with Deputy Chief Minister CN Ashwath Narayan, ensured BJP’s victory in the KR Pet constituency of Mandya district, thus breaching the Vokkaliga-dominated region that JD(S) had made its bastion for a long time, during the December 2019 assembly bypolls. Mr. Vijayendra’s appointment comes amid allegations about his growing influence in administrative affairs.
