All the Karnataka State’s legislators were waiting for a long 48 hours to know what decision have to be taken by former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa, whether to quit the assembly or not.

This long waiting resignation drama was ended while BSY announced to take resign decision in later.

Once again confusing the fact to be quit the BJP, BSY on Monday at his residence, said, “I’ve only postponed my decision to quit.
This is not a blackmail tactic as I don’t aspire to become the CM or the party president.”

However BSY said his decision not to resign from the MLA’s post, was come on advice of party leaders Nitin Gadkari and Arun Jaitley. As per them without BSY, the party would be orphaned.

It has been said that BSY had threat of quitting the BJP as the number of MLAs who were backing him was not encouraging, included 30 legislators and six MLCs.

Accusing chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda, BJP state president KS Eshwarappa and party’s MP H N Ananth Kumar for making conspiry against him, BSY said, they are “conspiring and creating a suffocating atmosphere with an intention to drive me out of the party. These people won’t let me live. They are trying to finish me in a phased manner. They are involved in my character assassination.”

Against Kumar, he alleged of nurturing ambitions of becoming CM, being tried to dislodge his government thrice.

Listing charges on Gowda, he said, he had insulted me and my supporters After Udupi-Chikmagalur bypoll defeat. “He has been practising the politics of revenge by aligning with JD(S) leaders,” he told reporters.

He blamed Eshwarappa to be support CM for confusing and indulging in vendetta politics.

During his 30-minute press conference, BSY told about himself, “I’m leaving the decision to the central leadership whether they require Yeddyurappa or not. I’ve worked 40 years for the party and I’m not a sanyasi. Within three years of becoming CM, my programmes such as Bhagyalakshmi (scheme for girl child) and bicycles to students are still remembered.”
