Leaders backing B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday held talks with senior BJP leader L K Advani in the wake of demands for the Karnataka Chief Minister’s removal by the Bellary brothers.

Leaders backing B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday held talks with senior BJP leader L K Advani in the wake of demands for the Karnataka Chief Minister’s removal by the Bellary brothers.

Former MP Dhananjay Kumar and Karnataka Home Minister V S Acharya called on Mr. Advani to discuss the crisis in the state.

Both the leaders are in the capital as emissaries of Mr. Yeddyurappa and have tried to convince the central leadership that there should be no change of guard.

Mr. Kumar and Mr. Acharya had held a meeting with BJP general secretary (organisation) Ramlal on Saturday. They claimed that Mr. Ramlal had assured them the incumbent Chief Minister would continue.

The Karnataka Speaker Jagadish Shettar, who is close to the Bellary brothers —— Janardhan Reddy and G Karunakar Reddy —— met senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley, who is the central leadership’s pointsman for dealing with the crisis.

Mr. Jaitley had spent three days in Karnataka last week to resolve the crisis. After he failed to convince the dissidents, leaders from both the camps are visiting the capital to find a solution to the problem.

The Reddy brothers are expected to reach Delhi on Monday while Mr. Yeddyurappa will be here on November 4.
