Bangalore, Mar 26: In spite of Former Karnataka CM BS Yeddyurappa mellowing down from his hard stand seeking a reinstatement as the CM, he continues to give subtle hints that he is indispensable to the party. He has hinted that the BJP will need his leadership if it wants to register a victory in the Assembly elections next year.

Yeddyurappa also questioned the ability of current CM Sadananda Gowda and State BJP president KS Eshwarappa to lead the party for the upcoming polls. With BSY deciding to skip campaigning for the Udupi-Chikmagalur bypoll that resulted in a disastrous loss for the BJP in its stronghold, Yeddyurappa wants to portray himself as indispensable for the party's prospects in future.

Yeddyurappa commented on his decision to skip campaigning in his four-decade-long political career, "I did so because I was pained by Mr Sadananda Gowda’s statement, after I got a clean chit from the high court, that eight cases were still pending against me. I did not want to embarrass the party by campaigning”.

On his resort politics that was played out in the state, he said that it was only meant to show his strength after claims emerged that he had only 10-15 MLAs with him. He said, "I was not happy with the step I had taken, but it was inevitable to demonstrate our unity and also strength."
