No change in decision to quit BJP: Yeddyurappa

October 13, 2012 16:25 IST

Disgruntled Bharatiya Janata Party leader and former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa on Saturday came down heavily on some of his partymen, who have been trying to create confusion on the issue of his exit from the party.

"Let them wait with patience till December. There is no question of me staying in this party. There is no change in my decision on quitting the party," Yeddyurappa said while speaking to reporters.

Yeddyurappa said he would bid goodbye to the BJP in December and cautioned "if my followers who are in the ministry are troubled, then this government will not survive".

He said he would embark on statewide tour after resigning his assembly membership in December.

Yeddyurappa, who was set to hold a meeting of some of his supporters in Belgaum district on Saturday at his Dollor colony residence, postponed it till Navaratri festival which commences from October 16.

Sources close to the leader say Yeddyurappa has finalised plans to float a regional outfit in Karnataka ahead of the assembly polls to be held next year.

He has invited leaders from all districts for a discussion, the sources said.
