Hyderabad: BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Friday said that the BJP government in Karnataka, led by DV Sadananda Gowda, was doing a good job, but parried a question as to whether BS Yeddyurappa will be reinstated.
A dozen party MPs from the state had yesterday met senior
leader LK Advani, seeking that Yeddyurappa be brought back as
the Chief Minister.

The BJP president, who was in the city to extend support
to the three-day hunger strike by party`s national secretary
Muralidhar Rao over weavers` problems, said: "The BJP
government in Karnataka is doing well...the government is
indeed doing good work for development."
To the question about MPs from Yeddyurappa camp meeting
Advani, Gakari said these MPs had met him too, and discussed
several issues. "Yeddyurappa... being with the party, will
also work in support of the government," he said.

The BJP chief, however, refused to answer the question
whether the party had any plans to bring back Yeddyurappa, who
had to quit as the Chief Minister after an adverse report by
Lokayukta in a land allotment case.
