Former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa on Tuesday said his decision to leave the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) remained unchanged and he would formally announce the launch of his new party on Dec 10.
"There is no change in my decision to leave BJP. I will formally announce the launch of my new party at a convention in Haveri on December 10," Yeddyurappa told reporters.
"Before that, I will resign from BJP and my assembly membership," he said.
Yeddyurappa made the comments before a luncheon meeting of his supporters at his residence.
