Bangalore: Former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Wednesday said that he will quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in December, following months of a gradual souring of ties with the party's top leadership.
"My thinking is clear. I will not remain in BJP by this December. I will decide whether to float a new political party or join other outfits after consulting my confidants", he said, speaking to journalists on the sidelines of a function at Anekal.
"It is 100 percent sure that I will come out of this party", Yeddyurappa, who has accused the central leadership of "betraying" him on their assurance of making him the state unit president, said.
