PANAJI: BJP president Nitin Gadkari today refused to comment on B S Yeddyurappa's demand for reinstating him as Karnataka chief minister.

"It is not mandatory for me to answer all the questions," Gadkari said, when he was asked about the crisis in the party in Karnataka.

"Ask me questions on Goa. I will answer this when I am in Bangalore," he added.

When he was asked whether the Karnataka crisis has become a 'headache' for the party, he answered "I don't get headaches. I can even sleep in a helicopter or an aeroplane. I don't need to carry tablets for headache."

Yeddyurappa, who was forced to resign more than six months ago after a Lokayukta report indicted him on illegal mining issue, had issued an ultimatum to his party saying he should be reinstated as the Chief Minister by the February 27, failing which he will decide his course of action.

Gadkari has already ruled out Yeddyurappa's return to the top post, despite the leader's pressure tactics.
