Meanwhile, many rumours claimed that Lingayat community, which is believed as one of the most powerful support for Yeddyurappa, have been divided following some differences between BSY and the Karnataka CM.
Yeddyurappa also has been quoted as saying, "some people within the party (BJP) were trying to split the Lingayat community."
Earlier on Tuesday, Feb 22 Yeddyurappa had mocked at Sadananda Gowda saying, "Gowda has become the CM by luck. The statement may bruise the relation between Yeddyurappa and Gowda.
Yeddyurappa, who returned to Bangalore after his crucial meeting with BJP President Nitin Gadkari in New Delhi, has been quoted as saying, "It is true that Sadananda Gowda rose to the Chief Minister's post by virtue of his luck. Even former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy too became the Chief Minister by his luck. I have no role in making Sadananda Gowda as Chief Minister."
However, Yeddyurappa's successor, Sadananda Gowda denied all news regarding the cold war with the former Chief Minister.
Gowda said that all aspects of governance as well as coordination with the party will be discussed during the two-day brainstorming session scheduled to be started on Feb 24.
