Karna BJP crisis: Gadkari meets Yeddy, Gowda
Yeddyurappa, who was forced to resign more than six months ago after a Lokayukta report indicted him on illegal mining, made it clear to the party chief that he was in no mood to wait any longer.
Ahead of the BJP`s `Chintan Manthan Baitak`, Gadkari had a meeting with Yeddyurappa this morning and separately met Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda to bring about a truce.
Sources said Yeddyurappa was adamant on his stand and wants Gowda to be removed. Gowda, who was Yeddyurappa`s choice for the post when he himself had to step down after being indicted in a graft case by the Karnataka Lokayukta, has now fallen out with Yeddyurappa.
