It is a routine visit, says Yeddyurappa
Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today said no significance should be attached to his two-day visit to Delhi and termed it as a "routine visit".
"BJP is a national party. As Chief Minister of a state, I am duty bound to brief my high command leaders on the political situation in the state and also seek their guidance", Yeddyurappa told reporters after a meeting of ministers and senior leaders he had convened at his private residence here.
Yeddyurappa who called senior leaders like L K Advani, Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj in the last two days in Delhi said he sought suggestions and guidance from them.
Yeddyurappa is under battering from opposition parties to quit in the wake of Governor H R Bhardwaj giving sanction to prosecute him on allegations of corruption.
The Chief Minister appealed to Congress and JDS to cooperate with the government during the budget session, obviously seeking their help in conducting the legislature session.
Opposition parties disrupted the session demanding the resignation by Yeddyurappa government over the land scams it faced.
