As the BJP announced that the status quo in Karnataka would continue, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa heaved a sigh of relief and said: “All my problems are solved.” He would continue to bring more glories to the State and complete his term and reinstate the party in power.
Speaking to The Hindu before leaving for Bangalore after camping here for the last three days, Mr. Yeddyurappa said he would ensure that the BJP gained victory in the zilla parishad and panchayat elections like the success achieved by it in last year's Lok Sabha poll and the subsequent municipal corporation elections. He appealed to the BJP leaders and workers back home to work hard for the party's victory. He attacked the opposition parties for levelling “baseless and false” allegations against him on land denotification.
Mr. Yeddyurappa visited the Raghavendra temple here early on Wednesday. He had a breakfast meeting with party MPs and later called on Karnataka Governor H.R. Bhardwaj, describing the meeting as a courtesy call.
After the high command made the announcement that he would continue to be Chief Minister, Mr. Yeddyurappa, accompanied by the State BJP president, K.S. Eswarappa, met BJP president Nitin Gadkari and thanked him.
