The drama in Karnataka is expected to drag on for some more time with the Central leadership telling former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa faction to wait at least another three days.

The message from the party leadership came even as Yeddyurappa and his followers sent across a letter with the support of nearly 65 members of Legislative Assembly urging the leadership to convene a legislature meeting.

The Central leadership which has been holding talks with the Yeddyurappa camp has said that a decision cannot be taken in haste. Moreover, many leaders such as Bharatiya Janata Party president Nithin Gadkari are not in New Delhi at the moment and a decision can be taken only once they return.

Yeddyurappa has however not commented and hopes that something positive would come out. They are also hopeful that the party leadership would come out with a suitable formula.

Meanwhile the number of members of Legislative Assembly in the Yeddyurappa camp went up by nearly 10. On Sunday, he along with 55 MLAs had moved into a resort.

However, by Monday evening he got the support of 10 more MLAs, thus taking his number to 65. The BJP has 117 MLAs in all, and need 112 to remain in power.
