Karnataka BJP crisis: CM BS Yediyurappa offers to quit, say sources

Bengaluru/IBNS: In a new twist to the Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) crisis, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has offered to step down citing his illness, media reports said quoting sources.

Reports say Yediyurappa offered to quit during his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

However, the Chief Minister had rubbished such speculations.

After toppling the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) government, the BJP had formed the state government in 2019 under Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.

The party fell into crisis after several leaders went against the Chief Minister publicly, while the BJP top brass is struggling to iron-out the differences.

Meanwhile, Yediyurappa met BJP national president Jagat Prakash Nadda on Saturday.

Claiming the meeting was held centred on the next state polls, Yediyurappa tweeted, "Called on BJP National President Shri JP Nadda ji in New Delhi today. Discussed on various matters including further strengthening the party's prospects in Karnataka ahead of 2023 general elections. After toppling the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) government, Yediyurappa became the Chief Minister in 2019."
