Speaking to reporters, Yeddyurappa commented, "It is left to the party to take a decision on utilizing my services in whatever capacity. I will accept whatever decision the party high command takes." Yeddyurappa had raised the pitch with the BJP central administration on reinstating him as the CM, while CM Sadananda Gowda had always maintained that there will be no change of leadership in the state.
With high drama being played out in the state, Yeddyurappa seem to have mellowed down after meeting with senior BJP leaders. He had earlier stated, "I am confident the party will take an appropriate decision at an appropriate time."
CM Gowda also added that Yeddyurappa was the "unquestionable leader" of the state but also said that the BJP was happy with the government and the budget presented by him.
Yeddyurappa meanwhile stated that he was not responsible for the Udupi-Chikmagalur bypoll debacle of the BJP and said, "I am not responsible for the defeat in Udupi-Chikmagalur bypoll. Due to various reasons, I could not campaign."
On the resort politics played out by Yeddyurappa, he commented, "There is nothing wrong in holding meeting in a resort. Definitely we will have more such meetings. The MLAs can even meet him in his race course residence in future to discuss their constituency problems." He added that the opportunity was utilized for understanding the problems faced by the legislators in their constituencies rather than a move to show off his clout.
