BJP state vice-president BY Vijayendra did not go to Delhi to meet party seniors, but instead went for an ED-conducted inquiry, MLA Basangauda Patil Yatnal said.
CM BS Yeddyurappa has stated that he will resign from his post as soon as the High Command suggests it. Yeddyurappa is said to have devised this tactic to silence his opponents within the party.
Former minister CT Ravi stayed in Delhi for three days. Attended a meeting with central leaders. Another prominent Lingayat leader Murugesh Nirani left for Delhi and returned on Saturday.
No information is available about the secret meetings of the leaders, but it is clear that the ongoing debate in Delhi is related to a change of leadership.
Still, Murugesh Nirani’s connection with central BJP leaders, especially his relationship with Home Minister Amit Shah, is not a secret.
In addition, Nirani met RSS and BJP leaders on Friday and Saturday. Nirani had changed his plan 10 days ago when CP Yogeshwar and MLA Arvind Bellad left for Delhi.
Yogeshwar, who had returned from Delhi, wanted to convene a meeting of the Legislative Party, but later developments changed his mind. Yogeshwara, who went to the swamijis after learning that signatures were being collected against him, had met JSS and Adi Chunchanagiri swamijis of Mysore.
