While a group of loyalist ministers in the BJP government in Karnataka — Basavaraj Bommai, Umesh Katti, C M Udasi, V Somanna — called on Yeddyurappa at his residence before he set out to quit, none of them participated in a rally and post resignation meetings.
Only five MLAs, three MLCs, three MPs — including his son Raghavendra — were in Yeddyurappa's company on Friday. Two former Congress MLAs and a JDS MLA however joined Yeddyurappa.
Meanwhile, hours after quitting the BJP, Yeddyurappa joined the KJP. Party interim president V Dhananjayakumar admitted Yeddyurappa into the party by enrolling him as primary member.
