Bangalore: B Sreeramulu, who won the recent
Bellary (Rural) Assembly constituency byelection as an
independent after quitting BJP, on Friday said he supported BJP
MPs` campaign to reinstate BS Yeddyurappa as Karnataka Chief
Minister or make him the state party chief.

"I and my supporters fully support Yeddyurappa`s
reinstatement as Chief Minister. No one should be astonished
if he becomes Chief Minister again," he told reporters here
during his visit to Gadag after winning the byelection.

"Yeddyurappa is my political guru and there is nothing
wrong if his supporters wants him back as Chief Minister," he
said.

To a question, Sreeramulu said the BJP government in the
state would complete its term and he did not have any plan to
destabilise the party.
