The former Karnataka chief minister is reportedly firming up plans to launch his political outfit — the Karnataka Janata Party.
The move comes in the wake of his bête noire Ananth Kumar trying to wrest control over the party by lobbying for the BJP state president’s post for his followers.
In addition, the BJP sacked two of Yeddyurappa’s followers from important posts, sending him a clear message that his tantrums would not be tolerated anymore.
On Wednesday, Yeddyurappa skipped the BJP national executive committee meeting. It is learnt from sources that the party did not even extend an invitation to him, which infuriated him further.
Sources close to the former CM said he was one step away from severing his ties with the BJP. “If all goes as planned, Yeddyurappa will announce the formation of KJP, backed by the Lingayat community priests, in November,” a leader close to him said.
Yeddyurappa ducked media glare by checking into the Art of Living ashram near Bangalore. “Our leader is preparing to fight the final political battle. We expect him to take a major decision by the weekend,” one of his aides said.
Cruiser motorcycles might not be very popular in India, but there is still a segment of buyers who prefer to buy these body style of bikes. While there is little option at the lower end of the segment, at high price brackets there are quite a few alternatives. Earlier this year, DSK Motowheels launched the Hyosung GV650 Aquila Pro, which offers quite a lot to the cruiser enthusiast. Priced at Rs. 5.46 lakhs (Mumbai), the GV650 is significant value.
