Will B S Yeddyurappa let go easy? It does not seem to be the case.

Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament D B Chandre Gowda and party legislator B P Harish have come out in the open, questioning the decision of the high command to sack Yeddyurappa.

This gives an indication about what is in store for senior party leaders when they arrive in Bengaluru to select the next chief minister of Karnataka.

D B Chandre Gowda was the first to come out.

"Out of the 14 MLAs, 13 of us -- barring Ananth Kumar who is in New Delhi -- have appealed to the high command to reconsider its decision regarding the ouster of Yeddyurappa. We have made an appeal stating that the decision made on the basis of the Lokayukta report be considered immediately," he told rediff.com.

"We will make another appeal by evening and hope that the high command will take out time for it. We have also consulted some MLAs who also have the same opinion," he added.

Legislator B P Harish too voiced a similar opinion. He, however, went a step ahead and stated that the decision of the high command was unfair.

"Yeddyurappa enjoys the support of 60 MLAs and the high command did a wrong thing by taking a decision of its own without even consulting the MLAs. The Lokayukta report is biased and the high command could not have come to a conclusion on that basis and worse without consulting any of us," he lamented.

At the moment there is a hectic effort on. Yeddyurappa's supporters are making a last ditch attempt to save his seat.

His supporters are in talks with RSS leaders and also Venkaiah Naidu at the Kumara Krupa guest house in Bengaluru to convince them to change their stance.
