Amid a fresh round of speculation about leadership change in Karnataka ahead of Union Home Minister Amit Shah's visit, state BJP strongman BS Yediyurappa dismissed it, saying Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai was doing a "good job." Shah is scheduled to take part in several events including the valedictory function of 'Khelo India' University Games in Karnataka's Shivamogga. "He (Shah) is coming, I will be meeting him. He will try to know about the political situation in the state. As state elections are ahead, the Prime Minister and Amit Shah have decided to give priority to Karnataka. He is likely to give suggestions on reaching the 150 seats target that we have set for the next assembly polls," Yediyurappa told reporters.
