Yeddyurappa vows to work together


"You will see different Yeddyurappa from tomorrow", he told reporters at midnight at his residence on arrival from New Delhi where the party evolved an "amicable settlement" to end the two-week long stalemate following the revolt. Expressing relief over the crisis having blown over, he said " now I am extremely happy". Refusing to divulge details of the compromise formula, he said they would be clear within a few days.

The chief minister, who arrived to a rousing welcome by his supporters at the airport, said he would meet Speaker Jagadeesh Shettar on Monday. Shettar had been the rallying point of the rebel leaders who had demanded that he replace Yeddyurappa. Shettar had earlier refused a ministerial berth offer made by the ruling party when the crisis broke out. Yeddyurappa said that the Central leadership would be vising the state shortly to discuss issues. On dropping some of his ministers from the cabinet berth as demanded by the warring faction, he said the issue will be discussed with his colleagues.

Expressing concern over pending flood relief work, Yeddyurappa said he would hold a meeting on Monday to chalk out his tour to the flood-affected regions. To a query, whether he would reinstate the officials transferred in Bellary, which triggered the revolt, he said, he was not willing to discuss the matter with the media. "Reddy brothers and I shall meet and sort out the issue".
