NEW DELHI: In latest developments, BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa is likely to be reinstated as Karnataka chief minister, according to TV reports. The announcement will be made within 24 hours, news channels reported. Yeddyurappa had earlier set a 48-hour deadline to the high command to make him chief minister. The former CM has had a blow-hot-blow-cold approach in his war against the party leadership. But despite the battle, he has shown reluctance to quit the party. A clean chit from the Karnataka high court in the illegal mining case emboldened Yeddyurappa's fresh move to exert pressure on the party to reinstate him as chief minister. Yeddyurappa is expected to arrive in Delhi by Wednesday afternoon, to hold meetings with the central BJP leadership. Yeddyurappa, who is demanding another shot at being chief minister, had placed more than half the BJP's MLAs in a five-star resort since the weekend. Their absence from the assembly proceedings had made it impossible for the current chief minister Sadananda Gowda to present his budget. Hectic negotiations, however, helped end that crisis. Yeddyurappa's followers arrived, as promised by him last night, at the assembly this morning and the CM was able to present the budget. Earlier, the BJP central leadership had forced Yeddyurappa to quit in July 2011 after he was indicted by the Lokayukta report on illegal mining. Former Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde's inquiry into mining graft in Karnataka had accused Yeddyurappa and other key officials for causing a loss of at least 160 billion rupees to the state exchequer between 2006 and 2010. Yeddyurappa tendered his resignation on July 31 to Karnataka Governor Hansraj Bhardwaj, following allegations of corruption. http://m.timesofindia.com/PDATOI/articleshow/12354073.cms I need 0-0 option in next elections.
