State BJP president B S Yeddyurappa stated that he would request BJP leaders not to say that the coalition government would fall and BJP would come to power in the State immediately after May 23.

"Our leaders should not speak so till May 23. I have also not said that the coalition government would fall, and I am not in a dream to become the chief minister, as criticised by Congress leaders. Let us take a decision based on the results of Lok Sabha and Assembly by-elections results which would be out on May 23," he said.

After BJP would win 22 LS seats and 2 Assembly seats, infighting in Congress-JD(S) alliance would get intensified, and anything can happen then, he told media persons here on Sunday.

Leaders say it again

However, former minister Govind Karjol later said, B S Yeddyurappa would be the chief minister again, after the BJP would win two Assembly seats for which by-elections are being held.

Former chief minister Jagadish Shettar noted that by-polls results would put an end to the rule of the coalition government. Former deputy chief minister K S Eshwarappa predicted that the existence of Congress has to be searched after May 23 results.
