New Delhi, Nov 20: Multi-crore land scam hit, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa will stay on his post as the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) deferred its decision on him.

Meanwhile, Yeddyurappa said after the meeting that he will expose the involvement of Janatha Dal Chief Deva Gowda and his family members in corruption. He also added that BJP senior leaders understood his innocents in the land scam allegations.

The meeting, which held on Friday, Nov 19 night, was attended by BJP President Nitin Gadkari, senior leader Ananth Kumar, Yeddyurappa and Karnataka Core Committee members. Meeting deferred the decision to decide the fate of CM for his involvement in Rs 500 crore land scam and nepotism till the matter is discussed with the Central leadership.

"The party president had requested the chief minister and senior leaders of Karnataka to come to Delhi for consultations with them which have been completed. We will be discussing what we discussed with them with senior leaders in Delhi," senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley told reporters after the meeting.

Sources reported that BJP feels that removing Yeddyurappa at this stage will affect the the party negatively as he is the most popular party leader in Karnataka.

Earlier, Yeddyurappa's two sons, daughter, sister and her son and daughter-in-law surrendered the residential and commercial land allotted to them.

Opposition parties accused that surrendering lands was the sign of Yeddyurappa's involvemnt in the land scam and demanded for his immediate resignation.
