New Delhi: Immediately after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday was named the BJP`s prime ministerial candidate, the former Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa said he will support Narendra Modi and NDA (National Democratic Alliance) in future.
"People hope for a vibrant India, I will support Modi ji and NDA in future," Yeddyurappa tweeted.

While hinting on his return into the Bharatiya Janata Party, Yeddyurappa said, "Will take the decision after a discussion with senior leaders of our party (Karnataka Janata Party) on September 18 and 19."

Yeddyurappa, BJP`s first CM in Karnataka, said he welcomed Narendra Modi`s nomination and would work for strengthening the NDA.

Last year, over mining bribery charges, BSY was forced to quit CM`s post after which he also left the BJP late last year and formed a new party, KJP.

The announcement of Modi`s elevation as BJP`s PM candidate was made here after the meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentary board, one of the party`s top decision making panels.
The day saw hectic parleys with party president Rajnath Singh trying to get all leaders, including senior leader LK Advani, on board.
