Yeddyurappa not to attend BJP National Executive Meet

Bangalore: Miffed over the party's top brass sidelining him, sulking BJP Karnataka strongman B S Yeddyurappa today said he would not attend the party National Executive meet to be held in Mumbai from 24th May.

"I will not attend the party national executive meet," Yeddyurappa, who recently pushed the party government to a crisis that had threatened its survival, told reporters here.

Yeddyurappa said he would tour the state after 30th May to know the pulse of the people and take an appropriate decision on his future.

However, Yeddyurappa sought to set at rest speculation about his future political moves, saying he will not join any political outfit including the Congress.

"There is speculation that I am going to join Congress. It is far from truth. There is no question of joining any political party", Yeddyurappa said after meeting people at his new "Public Meeting Centre".

Yeddyurappa's reaction came against the backdrop of comments made by some Congress leaders over admitting the former chief minister into the party.

He said he would tour the state after 30th May to know the pulse of the people and take an appropriate decision on his future.

After sparking a crisis with nine ministers and several MLA loyal to him submitting their resignations, Yeddyurappa however, announced a few days ago that he had deferred his decision to quit the party.
