On his birthday, Yeddyurappa had said, "Nitin Gadkari promised that DV Sadananda Gowda was a temporary chief minister and that he would make me the chief minister again at an appropriate time. It led to all kinds of speculation in Karnataka. I have now decided not to demand any position in the party in future."
Meanwhile, the issue is expected to come up at the core committee meeting on Mar 3 called by Gadkari. Sources had earlier said that the state BJP has decided to give Yeddyurappa the position of election campaign committee chairman.
