BS Yediyurappa on July 22 said that he would follow whatever the BJP leadership decided for him after July 26, indicating that he may not remain Karnataka Chief Minister after the weekend. On July 26, his government completes two years. Yediyurappa has been batting away speculation of his exit for weeks. Yediyurappa, 78, said "till now" he had not been asked to resign. “When the directions come, I'll quit and work for the party,” he said. Asked to name a potential successor, he refused and repeated, "Let's see after Sunday". Yediyurappa, the BJP's first and only Chief Minister in the south, had so far officially denied that there was any talk of his exit. Reports of his possible replacement peaked when Yediyurappa took a chartered flight to Delhi last Friday for meetings with PM Modi & others in the BJP leadership. Reportedly, in his meeting with PM Modi, he had offered to quit citing his health. A section of BJP MLAs and ministers have demanded that Yediyurappa be removed as Chief Minister.
