Support gathers for Yeddyurappa from 11 'rebel' MLAs

BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Jul 29: BS Yeddyurappa is determined to keep fighting before leaving his office as he has now support from 11 rebel MLAs of Karnataka.

The MLAs want that BSY stays and the Lokayukta report be rejected.

"Today all MPs have discussed the developments and have come to the conclusion that central leadership should not have removed Yeddyurappa only on the basis of Lokayukta report. MPs and majority of MLAs who are the chosen representatives have decided to appeal central leadership on their removal of Yeddyurappa," said BJP MP, Chandre Gowda.

"Under the leadership of Chandre Gowda we have decided to convey central leadership that decision taken by high command is not appropriate," said Prabhakar Kore, Rajya Sabha MP.

BSY put forward his demands a day after he was forced to give up his position as the CM of Karnataka. His demands include that he be given the right to chose his successor.

"We will talk to everyone including BS Yeddyurappa. The candidate will be decided through consensus. We are not going to Bangalore with a pre-decided name in mind," said senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh.

Meanwhile, Yeddyurappa has said that he will quit on Jul 31 (Sunday).
