No question of teaming up with BJP: Yeddyurappa

January 18, 2013 14:32 IST

Former chief minister and Karnakata Janata Party leader B S Yeddyurappa on Friday ruled out the possibility of his party forming a government with the Bharatiya Janata Party after the assembly polls.

"There is no question of the KJP joining hands with the BJP to form the government. Some of them are trying to create confusion in the minds of the people. Our aim is to form the KJP government on our own," he said.

Yeddyurappa also said there is no question of his party tying up with other parties to form the government.

"When I was in the BJP, I was determined to bring it to power in South India and did it. I am now determined to bring the KJP to power and I am confident I will succeed," he said.

Yeddyurappa said he did not expect any political change after January 23, nor was he "trying anything of that sort (destabilising the present government)."

Yeddyurappa said the Janata Dal – Secular and the Congress were ready to destabilise the government.

On his supporter Nehru Olekar's remarks that nearly 20 Members of Legislative Assembly and four ministers would join the KJP on January 23, Yeddyurappa said he was not aware of it.

Yeddyurappa said he has not given any deadline to BJP MLAs and ministers to join the KJP.

"If they want to join my party happily, let them do so. If they feel safe in the BJP, let them continue there. I have not set any deadline for them," he said.
