After Modi, Yeddyurappa attends BJP national executive
Mumbai: After Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, it is the turn of former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa to make his presence felt at the BJP national executive underway here and show that the party is at peace within.
Modi finally came to attend the national executive yesterday following the forced resignation of his detractor Sanjay Joshi.
Yeddyurappa, who was unhappy over not being reinstated as the Karnataka chief minister and had raised the banner of revolt, did a U-turn yesterday and decided to attend the national executive.
He had said earlier this morning that he was going to Mumbai to congratulate Nitin Gadkari, who has won a second term as the BJP national president.
Yeddyurappa had triggered the recent crisis with nine ministers loyal to him submitting their resignations, insisting on change of leadership of Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda amid speculation that he might split the party. He, however, said he had decided to quit the party but deferred his decision.
Incidentally, Yeddyurappa has not missed a single executive meeting of the BJP in the last two decades.
