He has been quoted as saying, "I am confident the BJP will do the right thing."
Meanwhile, the BJP High Command is giving mixed reaction to the issue with CM Sadananda Gowda stating earlier that there would be no change of leadership in the state. There seem to be differences among the BJP top brass with regards to the Yeddyurappa issue that has catapulted into something massive over time. With the support of 67 MLA's along with the fact that the party had to face a shameful defeat in the Udupi-Chikmagalur by elections has only powered Yeddyurappa's resolve to get back the CM's chair.
Gowda had also met with senior party leaders in the capital like LK Advani, Rajnath Singh, Murli Manohar Joshi. But after it emerged that the Yeddyurappa's mentor Gowda did not have any intention to vacate his chair for Yeddyurappa, things turned awry.
