B S Yeddyurappa likely to quit BJP

Bangalore, Sep 22 (): Not happy with the attitude of the high command after being expelled as Chief Minister of Karnataka, B S Yeddyurappa on Friday has conveyed the message that he could quit BJP as he feels distressed by it.

“I feel distressed and upset by the party. I am looking for a suitable time to take a decision on my future. After the conclusion of my second round of tour in the State which is likely to end this year, I have planned to take a decision,” said the former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa.

Yeddyurappa, while  expressing his unwillingness to take part in the BJP National Executive meet at Haryana which is likely to commence on Dec 27,  said that he will probably be announcing his decision by year-end.

Yeddyurappa said that the reason for his delay in taking a decision is because of Jagadish Shettar, who has been made the chief minister on his recommendation and any decision at this stage might put Shettar and his government in trouble.

Giving an honest reply,Yeddyurappa stated that he was neither aiming for any power or position in the party who has mistreated him nor does he wish to become State president.

“I have strongly advised my supporters not to recommend the high command to grant me any position. Even if they are ready to offer I shall not accept any post,” added Yeddy.

“By the blessings of the people I shall once again take the charge of Chief Minister,” stressed Yeddy who was last year compelled by the BJP to step down after being charged in a land mining case.

Yeddyurappa after submitting his resignation has been functioning as a ruling party member as well as Opposition party member. It was due to his hard work that 3,200 crore loans was sanctioned to farmers, added Yeddyurappa.

While the government was not able to find a solution to the KSRTC strike, Yeddyurappa found an amicable solution by talking on both sides, said his supporters.

Regarding the Cauvery issue, Yeddyurappa criticized the Prime Minister for directing to grant water to Tamil Nadu. He added that the PM might have thought to woo J Jayalalithaa in order to save his minority government by obtaining AIADMK support.
