BENGALURU: Former Chief Minister S M Krishna is set to meet BJP national president Amit Shah in New Delhi on March 13 to hold talks on the possibility of joining the BJP.
The meeting has been fixed following BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa formally inviting Krishna to join the party on Shah’s instruction. According to BJP sources, Shah has already held preliminary talks with Krishna on inducting the latter into the party.
BSY to mollify dissidents
A day after a group of dissidents set a deadline of March 15 for Yeddyurappa, asking him to redress their grievances, the latter on Tuesday agreed to effect a few changes in office-bearers of district units. It may be recalled that Shah had asked Yeddyurappa to consider the demand of dissidents and also withdraw the suspension notices issued to those who had identified themselves with Sangolli Rayanna Brigade.
