CM BSY rushes to Delhi amidst threat of rebellion from party members-1Bengaluru: Fearing a rebellion from among the party's ranks and the possibility of a few disqualified MLAs planning to return to their mother party, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has rushed to New Delhi to seek the guidance of the BJP high command.

It can be noted that 16 disqualified rebel MLAs are also camping in New Delhi.

According to sources, Yediyurappa is likely to meet senior party leaders and advocates to find out a legal solution to the problems of the disqualified MLAs who are now pressurizing him to induct them into his Cabinet.

"The disqualified MLAs want only the plum portfolios. But the BJP's veteran leaders like R Ashoka and Jagadish Shettar are also eyeing the same portfolios. This is adding to the confusion," explained a senior BJP leader.

Meanwhile, CM Yediyurappa has assured rebel MLA Umesh Katti, who threated to join the Congress, that he will be given a ministerial post.
