BSY reinduction:Wait till session is over,says Modi-1Bangalore: Former Chief Minister D.V.Sadananda Gowda has made a formal request to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to ensure reinstate the of former CM B.S.Yeddyurappa into the BJP.

D.V.S led a delegation which met Modi at Ahmedabad on August 6 and officially requested him not to ban the sale of arecanut in Gujarat. After the  meeting, Mr Gowda and his  team discussed with Mr Modi who is the  parties campaign committee chairman, the reentry of Mr Yeddyurappa.

The BJP delgation included former BJP state president K.S. Eshwarappa, Mangalore MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and former MLA, Nagaraj Shetty.

Both Sadananda Gowda and Eshwarappa requested  Modi to resolve the confusion over the Yeddyurappa issue at the earliest.

D.V.S reportedly told Modi that without Yeddyurappa, the BJP would not perform any better in the coming Lok Sabha elections.  "If the party wants to retain the present Lok Sabha seats it holds in the 2014 elections, Mr Yeddyurappa must be reinducted", Mr. Gowda told the Gujarat CM.

According to him, the anti-Congress alliance would help the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and for this grand alliance to fructify, the central leadership has to take an early decision on B.S. Yeddyurappa.

However, former deputy chief minister K.S.Eshwarappa cautioned the leaders about the reinduction of Yeddyurappa. He said the BJP state unit is ready to welcome Mr Yeddyurappa back to the party without any preconditions. But if Yeddyurappa returns to the party fold, groupism may start once again, so the party has to ensure discipline after his return, he said. Mr Eshwarappa reportedly said  Yeddyurappa should not be allowed to have an upper hand in the decision making process in the party.

But Modi was not committal about an early decision on the reinduction. He said the party central leadership would take an appropriate decision after the Parliament session is over.
