BJP can't snub Yeddyurappa, desperate to woo Lingayat leader

Yeddyurappa with Shettar and Eshwarappa
Bangalore, Oct 29: It seems that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) can not ignore its dark horse BS Yeddyurappa as the party looks desperate to woo the Lingayata leader in Karnataka.

According to sources, Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar and Deputy Chief Minister R Ashok were instructed by the party high command to meet the former Karnataka CM who had announced his decision of parting ways with BJP.

The BJP is believed to have initiated an exercise to put its house in order and accommodate regional leaders ahead of the elections.

However, Yeddyurappa seems least bothered about BJP's latest move towards making peace as he called the party's patch-up attempt a sham, a "drama".

The former CM, who has also announced his decision of launching his new party by Dec 2012, has refused to attend a patch-up meeting in Delhi on Oct 30.

Jagadish Shettar and R Ashoka are expected to leave for the national capital on Monday and Yeddyurappa's loyalists Basavaraj Bommai, Umesh V Katti and CM Udasi are also expected to meet the party president Nitin Gadkari.
