on Thursday welcomed the BJP Parliamentary Board`s decision asking
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to resign
immediately.

Ending the uncertainty over the fate of 68-year-old
Yeddyurappa who headed the BJP`s first government in the
south, the BJP Parliamentary Board today met and unanimously
decided that there should be a change in leadership in
Karnataka and "advised" him to resign immediately.

wake of the report of Karnataka Lokayukta on illegal mining,"
he said.

Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi also welcomed the
decision.
