Bangalore: Rebel leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has reiterated that the question of him remaining in the BJP does not arise. He insisted that he will go ahead with the launch of his party.
The strongman from north Karnataka met supporters in Bangalore on Tuesday. Yeddyurappa is set to launch his new party on December, ahead of the Assembly elections in early 2013.
The BJP central leadership is still hopeful that Yeddyurappa won't leave the party. Angry over being neglected by the top brass after his ouster as Chief Minister, Yeddyurappa had earlier this month announced that he would quit BJP by December and float a new party.
