Bangalore, July 29 (IANS) Supporters of Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa Friday made public his conditions to quit - full powers over the party and the new government, a free hand to lead the party in the next assembly polls and the chief minister’s post thereafter.

“The person chosen by Yeddyurappa should be his successor, he should decide who will be in the new ministry, lead the party in the next polls and return as chief minister,” Harihar legislator B.P. Harish said.

He is among the scores of legislators supporting Yeddyurappa and had assembled at his residence to impress upon central leaders Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley to retain him as chief minister.

Harish told reporters after these legislators met the two leaders that “we have conveyed these demands to them and hope they will be accepted”.

Excise Minister M. P. Renukacharya, another Yeddyurappa loyalist, said: “We are confident that no decision will be taken in a hurry by our leaders and Yeddyurappa will remain chief minister.”

Harish said he and several legislators and party members were “upset” that the decision to remove Yeddyurappa was taken in Delhi without consulting the assembly members.

“In our party views of the legislators must and will prevail,” he claimed.
