The BJP held a meeting to discuss the crisis in the government, following which it was decided that Yeddyurappa would take the final call.

Yeddyurappa said that there were several within the Congress who were upset with the party and were ready to quit. We have nothing to do with this. In fact those leaders have stated in public that they are unhappy with the Congress. The current dispensation has a very short life span and would collapse soon, Yeddyurappa also added.

Meanwhile, B Sriramulu who has been accused of engineering the dissent said that he is not concerned. He said that Ramesh Jarkiholi can go to Delhi, resign from the Congress.
