Sadananda Gowda and BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Feb 23: It seems that two friends suddenly have become foes and their bitter relationship has been haunting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Karnataka. BS Yeddyurappa, who believed to have recommended Sadananda Gowda's name as his successor, now reportedly started demanding resignation from him (Gowda).

BJP President, Nitin Gadkari is expected to visit Bangalore on Friday, Feb 24 and sources informed that Yeddyurappa may pressurise Gadkari to remove Gowda from CM post. Here it can be recalled that Yeddyurappa recently visited New Delhi and reportedly convened his message to the party president over Gowda's resignation.

Earlier on Wednesday, 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.

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.

Though there were reports which quoted close aides of Gowda saying that he (Gowda) will not put his paper of resignation unless the party high command asks him to do that. Gowda reportedly refused to work on Yeddyurappa's wish.
