Narendra Modi and BS Yeddyurappa
New Delhi, May 18: Just a day after his meeting with RSS leaders, former Karnataka Chief Minister and the game-changer of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- BS Yeddyurappa met Narendra Modi at Gujarat Bhawan in New Delhi on Sunday, May 18.

It seems that Yeddyurappa, whose decision of rejoining BJP helped the party to get votes in Karnataka, is eyeing for a cabinet post. The senior leader, who had left the party over dispute for power, spoilt BJP's dream to retain governing power in Karnataka. BJP was defeated by Congress and it was believed that Yeddyurappa's party KJP had divided BJP's vote-shares during assembly election in the state in 2013.

However, Yeddyurappa, who is also known as a Modi supporter, rejoined BJP and contested Lok Sabha election from his constituency Shimoga. As it was expected, Yeddyurappa won the seat and helped BJP to get the Lingayat votes in the Southern states of the country.

It is left to Narendra Modi and all India party leadership: BSY on cabinet post

Before meeting Modi, Yeddyurappa had met RSS leaders on Saturday." BJP has won the elections because of Modi, our work and failure of Congress," Yeddyurappa stated while expressing his happiness over Modi becoming Prime Minister.

The senior BJP leader appreciated the work of RSS, saying the party has done well due to Sangh's support. However, he refused to comment on his aspiration of getting a post in Union Cabinet saying, "It is left to Narendra Modi and all India party leadership."

The PM-designate Modi too is expected to meet RSS leaders later in the day. They are likely to discuss about cabinet posts.
