“Advani was annoyed with the theatrics of Yeddyurappa on the issue of resigning as chief minister. In the former"s view, it amounted to cocking a snook at the high command, which had asked him to quit. Advani called party national president Nitin Gadkari, and told him that he would not attend Parliament on Monday, if the resignation of Yeddyurappa was not obtained by Sunday evening," said BJP sources.
Nitin Gadkari after that called BSY and asked him to issue a statement that he would resign by Jul 31, afternoon following which Yeddyurappa was forced to issue a statement on his resignation.
“I had already issued a statement on this issue. But a section of media had misguided the people by giving news far from truth. But I will resign on Sunday," said Yeddyurappa in a statement.
