Karnataka: Gowda follows Yeddyurappa to New Delhi


Sadanada Gowda-BS Yeddyurappa
New Delhi, Mar 22: Chief Minister of Karnataka Sadananda Gowda arrived in New Delhi late on Wednesday night following BS Yeddyurappa, who is in the capital to douse the fire that has engulfed Karnataka in a political turmoil.

While rumours are rife that BS Yeddyurappa will be reinstated as the Chief Minister of the state, Gowda believes that there will be no change in the leadership.

"We called our party president Nitin Gadkari and asked about the speculations. He said there was nothing of that sort and there was no question of a leadership change. In spite of that we thought it is fair on our part to come and explain him all the things in detail. There are several reasons why we lost the bypoll for Udupi-Chikmagalur. That also we will explain to the party president," Gowda said.

The Chief Minister arrived at BJP senior leader LK Advani's residence early this morning.

"He is the right man to answer those questions. I am confident there will be no change in leadership in Karnataka for the time being," said Gowda on being asked why Yeddyurappa was confident of winning back his throne.

"I have no idea. I can only tell after meeting the high command," Yeddyurappa said over the issue of change of leadership in the state.

Sources reveal that BJP has stooped down to the demands of the former tainted minister, Yeddyurappa and he will be reinstated as the chief minister.

While Sushma Swaraj and LK Advani are opposing the move, sources reveal that Yeddyurappa has the support of Party president, Nitin Gadkari.
