Bengaluru, Nov 10 (SocialNews.XYZ) BJP's newly-appointed Karnataka President B.Y. Vijayendra on Friday said that his first priority is ensuring the party's victory in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
"The national President has given responsibility of ensuring the victory of maximum seats from Karnataka. I will work and deliver," he said.
Addressing reporters after the announcement, Vijayendra said that he is proud that he is the son of former CM B.S. Yediyurappa.
