BANGALORE: Supporters of B S Yeddyurappa have intensified thier efforts to reinstate their leader as the chief minister. On Friday, three of his supporters — ministers Basavaraj Bommai, Murugesh Nirani and Umesh Katti — met party national president Nitin Gadkari at Goa and placed their demand for a suitable post for Yeddyurappa.

They have also invited Gadkari for the Hubli programme on March 11 in which Yeddyurappa will be felicitated.

Interestingly, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda and state BJP president K S Eshwarappa were also in Goa. They had gone to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Manohar Parikkar as the chief minister.

Gadkari is said to have told Bommai and others that the party high command was aware  of the High Court verdict and would take a suitable decision.

However, sources in the party maintain that Yeddyurappa’s dream to return as CM before the Budget session cannot be fulfilled.

The reason could be that the party high command is said to be not in favour of changing leadership in the midst of byelection to the Udupi-Chikmagalur parliamentary constituency.
