25 May 2008 is a saffron-lettered day in the diary of Bookanakere Siddalingappa Yediyurappa. Not only has he won the resounding mandate of the people of Karnataka to lead the State, he has succeeded in helping the BJP set foot in the southern peninsula. For someone whose chief ministerial ambitions were chopped off after just a week in office last year, this is the pinnacle of a chequered career.
What is the one question you would like to ask Karnataka’s next chief minister? What should his focus-areas be in the first three, first six and first twelve months in office?
