Not in running for any party post: BSY

A day after he was released on bail, former Karnataka CM B S Yeddyurappa said Wednesday that he was “not trying for any position in the party”, even as his supporters demanded that he should be made the state BJP president.
“I am a BJP worker. I will travel around the state to build the party. I will campaign for the party. I am not trying for any position in the party,’’ said Yeddyurappa. CM D V Sadananda Gowda and many state ministers and legislators considered loyal to Yeddyurappa met him at his house Wednesday.
Yeddyurappa, who spent 25 days in prison, visited the influential Siddaganga mutt, a Lingayat mutt in Tumkur.
In a brief interaction with the media, Yeddyurappa denied any animosity towards party leaders like L K Advani who targeted him in the course of his yatra. “Let God do good to all,’’ he said.
Stating that had committed no crime that warranted his arrest, Yeddyurappa said: “I will however leave everything to the people of the state to decide if I have done right or wrong.
