yadurappaBangalore: Former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has decided not to merge his party Karnataka Janatha Paksha with the Bharatiya Janata Party but support the National Democratic Alliance. This came after a meeting of the KJP to decide its stand on its ties with the BJP. “We have unanimously decided that we will not be merging with BJP or any party but will support NDA,” Yeddyurappa said after the meeting. Yedyurappa had secretly visited the national capital twice in the past 50 days to clinch a seat sharing deal with the Congress. He even met a top leader of the Congress to explore the possibility of such a tie up.

But, the Congress insisted on an informal seat ‘adjustment’. Realising that such an arrangement will benefit the Congress and not his party, Yeddyurappa had reportedly started negotiations with the BJP.
