According to sources, Yeddyurappa, who has currently set his castle in Delhi, wants him to be reinstated as the Karnataka CM or he will quit BJP. His argument supporting his demand is - he will come out clean as all allegations against him would soon be proved false.
Meanwhile, sources also informed that the supporters of the Lingayat leader have been continuously in touch with the NCP leader and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar. If he fails to regain his power, he may quit BJP to join NCP.
Yeddyurappa is believed to have set Jan 15 as deadline as the day would mark the end of Sankranti and would be auspicious for him to start his political battle against the senior BJP leaders, possibly over his astrologers advice.
The loyalists of the former CM had met LK Advani on Thursday, Dec 15 requesting the veteran leader to re-appoint Yeddyurappa as the CM of the state.
However, Yeddyurappa, who is well-known for his belief in gods and religious culture and rituals, reportedly said that during his recent visit to Vaishno Devi temple in Jammu, the Almighty "suggested" him to quit BJP.
