During an hour-long meeting or core team of KJP, held here on Wednesday, majority of party leaders suggested Yeddyurappa to strengthen the party where it has strong presence. “If we concentrated in eight to ten districts for 2014 Lok Sabha elections, like minded parties will come forward for an alliance,” many of the leaders opinioned in the meeting.
Ever the KJP did not get desirable results in the assembly polls held in May, Yeddyurappa has shown the urgency to join BJP. Making moves, he did not even field candidates against BJP in the bypolls held for the Upper House. The BJP gave up a seat in favour of KJP in Mysore.
The leaders present in the meeting maintained that KJP should not make first move for alliance with BJP or any other parties. “We have not discussed for alliance with any political parties. Regarding pre-poll alliance, party will take a decision at appropriate time. Instead of alliance, we have decided to strengthen the party cadre and position in the state,” Yeddyurappa told reporters after the meeting.
