BJP central leaders to decide Yeddyurappa's fate on Mar 30

The meeting is likely to be held on March 30. The dissidents, who had a series of meetings with BJP top leaders in New Delhi during the last two days, have been demanding the ouster of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa. They had argued that the corruption charges against Yeddyurappa and his family members have dented the image of the party.

Sources in the dissident camp said they have agreed for a temporary truce by holding back their “oust Yeddyurappa” campaign till completion of by-election to three Assembly constituencies on April 9.

BJP incharge of state affairs Dharmendra Pradhan, who also arrived in Bangalore on Friday, is learnt to have held a meeting with Yeddyurappa and his two sons B Y Raghavendra and B Y Vijendra at a star hotel late on Friday night.

During their Delhi visit, the rebels are understood to have shown certain documents to the central leaders to validate their complaints. The dissidents also spelt out instances wherein Yeddyurappa had allegedly ignored seniors in the party and taken unilateral decision.

Yeddyurappa is likely to call on the party leaders again on Saturday. He will be in Delhi to discuss the legal aspect of the Krishna Tribunal Award with senior counsel F S Nariman.
