Yedyurappa recently had a meeting with BJP President Nitin Gadkari and discussed the issue of moving from the regional to the national political arena. He stated that it was up to party leadership to take a decision on his future and said, "I have discussed with Nitinji. Whatever decision I am going to take, that will be finally decided by our (central) leaders. According to their direction, I will proceed further."
Yeddyurappa has come out with this shocker of a news on his quitting from Karnataka politics and concentrating more on national politics. He has even hinted at quitting from the plump Chief Ministerial position after the next Assembly elections due in May 2013.
Yeddyurappa was involved in a fierce war of words with Governor Bhardwaj after he produced a list of corrupt ministers in the BSY Cabinet. Friday, Dec 24, Yedyurappa is in Mandya campaigning for the Zilla and Taluk Panchayat elections. "There are a lot of issues coming out regarding the Governor. I will discuss (the issues) after election (Taluk and Zilla Panchayat polls on December 26 and 31) results," he opined.
He was also contemplating sending a formal complaint to President Pratibha Patil on Governor Bhardwaj's snubbing the BSY govt.
