Yeddy is an institution as CM:D B Chandre Gowda,

BJP leaders kicked off consultations to pick a new Chief Minister in Karnataka, some party MPs and MLAs on Friday rallied behind B S Yeddyurappa asking its high command to reconsider his resignation.

Senior BJP leaders Arun Jaitley and Rajnath Singh flew in Bangalore on Friday ahead of the BJP legislature party meeting to elect a new leader amid reports that Yeddyurappa is pressing hard for having a say in the choice of his successor.

Yeddyurappa reluctantly agreed to resign on Thursday following the party high command's decision in the wake of his severe indictment by the Lokayukta in the illegal mining scam. He said he will be officially submitting his resignation to Governor H R Bharadwaj on July 31.

D B Chandre Gowda, an MP said, "Karnataka BJP MPs are of the unanimous opinion that Yeddyurappa should not resign. He is not an individual. He is an institution as CM. He should have taken the opinion of all elected representatives. We appeal to the high command to reconsider."
