Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Saturday said no significance should be attached to his two-day trip to Delhi and termed it as a "routine visit".

"BJP is a national party. As Chief Minister of a state, I am duty-bound to brief my high command leaders on the political situation in the state and also seek their guidance," Yeddyurappa told reporters after a meeting of
ministers and senior leaders he had convened at his private residence here.

Yeddyurappa who called on senior leaders like LK Advani, Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj in the last two days in Delhi said he had sought suggestions and guidance from them.

The Chief Minister is under attack from Opposition parties which are demanding his resignation in the wake of Governor HR Bhardwaj giving sanction to prosecute him on allegations of corruption.

He appealed to Congress and JDS to cooperate with the government during the Budget session, seeking their help in conducting the legislature proceedings.

Opposition parties disrupted the last session demanding resignation by Yeddyurappa government over the allegations of land scams it faced.
