The former Chief Minister and Karnataka Janata Party president B.S. Yeddyurappa on Wednesday not only ruled out any possibility of his return to the Bharatiya Janata Party but also declared that he was ready to forge an alliance with the non-BJP parties ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in the State.

In an informal chat with reporters here, he alleged that some BJP leaders were trying to create confusion in the minds of the people by creating an impression that he was knocking on the doors of the BJP.

“It is totally false and baseless. I am not dreaming of returning to the BJP,” he said.

Mr. Yeddyurappa said that his immediate priority was to strengthen the KJP in the State for the Lok Sabha elections.

Support

He also said that he was ready to offer issue-based support to the Congress government and the Opposition in the State.
