Speaking to press persons, Yeddyurappa said "The central leadership has not given any positive response to my supporters demand to reinstate me as Chief Minister. What they will do I have to wait and watch." Expressing his dissent, Yeddyurappa claimed that he didn't expect anything from BJP.
"Even now I command respect from 70 MLAs. Show me any instance recorded in the annals of Indian and state politics where an erstwhile Chief Minister's popularity has only increased. This development nobody (including central leadership) is noticing," said Yeddyurappa.
"I built BJP by winning 2 seats in the beginning and then I brought it to power by winning 110 seats and increased its number to 120 and ruled the state for 3 years.
There is no looking back. My aim is to see BJP winning 150 seats in 2013 state (assembly) elections," he added.
