Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa left for Delhi on Saturday for further consultations with the BJP central leadership in the wake of Governor HR Bhardwaj sanctioning his prosecution over alleged land scams.

Before leaving for the national capital, Yeddyurappa told reporters that he would meet the party`s national leaders to discuss the political developments and the "attitude of our Governor".

Tomorrow, the party`s Lok Sabha and Rajya members from the State, along with BJP central leaders, are meeting President Pratibha Patil to complain about the Governor.
Maintaining an aggressive posture, Yeddyurappa had yesterday ruled out his resignation, following the Governor`s sanction for prosecution and vowed to fight the issue politically and legally.

"I am leaving for Delhi today to meet our national leaders to discuss the political developments and the attitude of our Governor," Yeddyurappa said.

"Tomorrow all our MPs and national leaders will meet President Pratibha Patil at 11.30 am and submit a memorandum to apprise her of the real situation," he said.
