KJP chief BS Yeddyurappa exuded confidence that he would return as the chief minister after the Assembly elections and also play a major role in the formation of the next government at the Centre.

During his 71st birthday celebrations at his office here on Wednesday, Yeddyurappa said that his new party, the KJP, was received well by the people. “If people bless me, I will definitely return as the chief minister and make Karnataka a welfare state,” Yeddyurappa said adding that he wishes to present a Budget with an outlay of Rs 2 lakh crore.

In the same breath he said that he had not re-launched the KJP for the sake of power, but to change the lives of the people by giving good governance. He also criticised the Centre for adopting “step-motherly” attitude towards Karnataka and said if his party managed win 15 MP seats, he would change this.
