Belagavi: The state BJP, which was planning a massive operation to bring down the coalition government by this weekend, is now reportedly in a dilemma owing to the party’s poor performance in the recent elections in the five northern states. BJP leaders here had expected the party to retain power in Chattisgarh and were hopeful about its prospects in Madhya Pradesh too, but with the saffron brigade losing power in both and also Rajasthan, they are now rethinking matters considering that the Congress is upbeat across the country, say sources. A senior Sangh Parivar leader said  the operation to pull down the government may have to be temporarily postponed. The party is now likely to wait till at least the Cabinet reshuffle to make its move, according to sources. It’s claimed that  at least two ministers and some MLCs were prepared to either resign or switch to the BJP before the results came in. The groundwork to bring down the government too had been laid with the BJP core team holding a meeting with some Congress leaders in the house of one of them, reveal sources. But the recent poll results have  reportedly put the spoke in the wheels of this grand plan. “If the coalition government is pulled down now, it may seem like the BJP is desperate after losing three states. Besides, forming a new government may pose a challenge ahead of the Parliamentary elections,''  said the Parivar functionary. But BJP legislators leading the operation claim it is still on as no deadline had been set for it. “We want the Congress leaders to make up their minds to resign from their party. For that, we may have to wait till the cabinet reshuffle is complete,'' they said. But the state government doesn’t seem in a hurry to carry out the Cabinet expansion with Deputy CM, Dr G Parameshwar evading a question on whether it was due as reported on December 22.
