This comment was made during an informal meet with state government officials and is surely set to keep the BJP guessing. The party is at crossroads when the decision of who the next CM will be is yet to be made.
The video footage of Yeddyurappa's comment was shown in TV channels and shows an official saying to BSY how it was a pleasure working with him. Replying to this comment he says that he would be back as the state CM in the next six months. The comment is sure to raise eyebrows among BJP top brass and other members in the party. There is also concern if the comment was made in a casual way or if it was uttered in due seriousness.
With the Yeddyurappa camp backing Udupi-Chikkamagalur MP DV Sadananda Gowda for the CM's job, the BJP central leadership is not too keen on the choice and wants to support Jagdish Shettar or Ananth Kumar for the coveted post. After reports emerged that BSY would be given an upper hand to choose his successor, the issue has become a bone of contention among the BJP leadership.
It was only yesterday (Aug 2) that Yeddyurappa moved the High Court seeking to quash his indictment in the Lokayukta report. His lawyer had stated that he should be given an opportunity to explain his stand and the recommendation for his prosecution on graft charges should be reviewed.
