Yeddyurappa hints at compromise formula

"Any important issue...whatever our all India leaders direct me, I am bound to do it. I have already agreed," he told reporters during his morning walk.

He was asked whether he is ready to sacrifice ministers and transfer bureaucrats as demanded by the Reddy brothers - Tourism Minister Janardhana Reddy and Revenue Minister Karunakara Reddy - who are heading the dissidents in the state. Yeddyurappa also ruled out leadership change.

Under a reported compromise formula in the making, Rural Development Minister Shobha Karandlaje, considered close to the Chief Minister, may be axed and Assembly Speaker Jagdish Shettar inducted into the cabinet while Chief Minister's Principal Secretary V S Baligar maybe shifted from the Chief Minister's office.

Yeddyurappa expressed confidence that the crisis maybe over by the evening after meeting of the central leadership with state leaders following which a press conference may be held.
Asked about the delay in settlement, he said, "That was ineveitable in politics".

To a question whether he would work with the Reddy brothers, he said "after a settlement is reached one should forget the past and work together".
