BJP has not given any positive response on demand:Yeddyurappa

Continuing to blow hot and cold on the leadership issue, BJP Karnataka strongman B S Yeddyurappa today said the central leadership has not given any positive response to his ''supporters' demand'' to reinstate him as Chief Minister.

"The central leadership has not given me any positive response to my supporters demand to reinstate me as Chief Minister. What they will do I have to wait and watch,” he told reporters travelling with him on a train en route to Shimoga, his home district.

The former Chief Minister's remarks come a day after he said he did not expect anything and the decision was left to the party's leadership.

"I will abide by whatever decision the central leadership takes," he had said after he hosted a breakfast meeting for party legislators and ministers at Bangalore, claimed to have been attended by more than 70 MLAs and 18 MLCs.

Yeddyurappa will attend a function in Shimoga where he will be felicitated by his supporters.
The Lingayat strongman had recently staged a show of strength by mobilising about 70 MLAs at a resort before calling a truce at the central leadership's intervention.
