BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, May 19: Former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa in an act of open defiance against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided not to attend the National Executive meeting in Mumbai scheduled to be held on May 23. He declared the same in a press conference and stated that he was not happy with the way BJP leaders have behaved lately. The national executive will see the BJP top brass congregating that includes top leaders LK Advani, Nitin Gadkari and Sushma Swaraj.

On rumours that he is gearing up to quit the BJP, he commented, "Don't make the impression that Yeddyurappa will join any other party." 

On Friday, Yeddyurappa had shifted to his new office sparking speculations that he might float his won party, the Karnataka Janata Party. The Lingayat leader along with his loyalists are mulling the next plan of action and has decided not to take any drastic action and quit the party. However, it is evident that Yeddyurappa is irked at the party's reaction and the treatment meted out to him when he was in trouble. The Supreme Court had recently given its go ahead for a CBI probe into his involvement in the illegal mining scam. 

The CBI had carried out massive raids in his residence as well as that of his sons and his son-in-law who have all alleged to have received kickbacks in the multi-crore mining deals.
