Though technically it was not an 'expulsion', the founder president of Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) has taken advantage of a letter sent by the Election Commission and removed Yeddyrappa from the presidentship of the party.
KJP founder Padmanabh Prasanna on Tuesday wrote to the EC that the party at its emergency executive committee meeting has withdrawn its earlier decision and decided to continue with Prasanna as the party president.
On Dec 9, at the Haveri convention of the KJP party, Yeddyurappa had assumed the post of KJP presidentship from V Dhanjay Kumar, who had become temporary president after an informal agreement with founder Prasanna.
Questioning this process, the EC had raised several queries on the president's election as the party went for regional party status.
Currently, Dhanjay Kumar is talking to Prasanna to resolve this tricky issue and hammer out a face-saving solution.
