Following it, all BJP MPs will observe the fast in their respective constituencies, while Shah will hold a "dharna" (sit-in) in poll-bound Karnataka's Hubli.

The state ministers have also been asked to pay heed to the issues and problems raised by the party office bearers, leaders and the workers, while a possible rejig of the bureaucracy and an expansion of the cabinet was also discussed, sources said. "The opposition's irresponsible conduct is aimed at obstructing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's efforts for the poor's welfare and the country's all-round development", Shah said.

The Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Preservation (Amendment) Bill was passed in the State legislature during the previous BJP regime, he said, but it could not become law due to the non-cooperation of HR Bhardwaj, the Governor at that time and the Congress leaders. He also asked for a go-between to be named for better coordination between the BJP and the allies.

Yadav (60) breathed his last around 1 AM at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi, where he had been admitted for treatment of stomach-related ailments, they said.


The sudden visit of Shah to offer his tribute to the Dalit icon is being seen as a counter tact against BJP Dalit MPs, who have launched a tirade against the party brass and the government.

Rajbhar told PTI, "I raised the issue of quota within quota for the most backward classes".

In a bid to woo Dalits, in the aftermath of the recent upsurge of the community, after the Supreme Court's "dilution" of the SC/ST Act, Union Minister Vijay Goel held a ceremony to pay tribute to Mahatma Jyotiba Phule on his birth anniversary on Wednesday. Rajbhar-led Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) has four MLAs in the state assembly.
