Bangalore, Mar 21 (ANI): Amidst growing turbulence in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Karnataka government, former Karnataka chief minister and BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa is expected to arrive in Delhi by Wednesday afternoon, to hold meeting with the central BJP leadership.
The move is being seen as an attempt to resolve the tussle going on within the party over the post of state chief minister.
Yeddyurappa, who is demanding another shot at being chief minister, had placed more than half the BJP's MLAs in a five-star resort since the weekend.
Their absence from the assembly proceedings had made it impossible for the current Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda to present his budget.
The BJP central leadership had promised to depute an emissary after the current budget session to resolve the crisis.
Earlier, the BJP central leadership had forced Yeddyurappa to quit in July 2011 after he was indicted by the Lokayukta report on illegal mining.
Former Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde's inquiry into mining graft in Karnataka had accused Yeddyurappa and other key officials for causing a loss of at least 160 billion rupees to the state exchequer between 2006 and 2010.
Yeddyurappa tendered his resignation on July 31 to Karnataka Governor Hansraj Bhardwaj, following allegations of corruption. (ANI)
